A circular economy optimizes continual use of resources, reducing waste, and enabling a closed loop system. It is one of the biggest opportunities to design a sustainable future – and an essential part of our strategy.
We offer sustainably designed products to meet customers seeking a variety of certifications.
150+ GREENGUARD-certified products
48 BIFMA LEVEL 3 products in North America

We supported customers in diverting material from the landfill and repurposing used furniture. We also expanded our network of partners for circular services, establishing new collaborations with e.g., Deartree in China and Label Emmaüs in France.
As we focus on improving our global footprint, manufacturing and environmental responsibility are not trade-offs – neither are profit and people. We continue to seek opportunities to address the environmental impact of our business in all facets of our operations.
At our plant in France, we have improved material efficiency by reusing offcuts. With more than 1,000 partitions produced each month, they avoid about 35 m³ of wood waste and reduce raw material consumption by more than 800 m² per month.
In 2022, we replaced 384,000 sq. ft. of roofing at one of our manufacturing facilities in Holland, Michigan. The projected energy and emissions savings total more than 801,000 kWh or 560 t CO2eq.
We continue to engage our supply chain to achieve our goal of 100% wood verified from sustainable sources and maintain chain of custody certifications according to FSC and/or PEFC.
