Our team is dedicated to fostering your organizational success, helping you build an environment that promotes collaboration internally and with customers, builds a culture of trust and open communication, cultivates continuous improvement, builds a flexible innovation infrastructure, and prepares your organization for new skill sets.

Turning Insights Into Action

We concentrate our efforts on understanding the life cycle impacts of our products – from materials extraction, production, transport, use and reuse, through the end of life. These efforts continue to yield deep insights that influence every facet of our operation.

We contribute to the growing body of research around social impact life cycle assessments. We also bridge research with practical realities, creating actionable practices and standards.

Closing The Loop

Good design and choosing the right materials can ensure a product will be desirable and have a long life. It also can ensure the product can be recycled. Our products are designed for easy disassembly, allowing pieces to be separated easily and quickly for replacement or recycling.

Our products are built to last; sometimes they outlast customer needs. Therefore, we offer multiple programs to extend a product’s lifespan through reuse and recycling, refurbishing and donating. These end of use services keep furniture out of landfills, provide non-profit organizations with needed resources and help customers meet their sustainability goals.
