Designing for Sustainability
We’re working toward better futures for the planet by recognizing our role in climate change and reducing our environmental impact, to help build a more sustainable and resilient world. We do this by making, sourcing and delivering products that help reduce our carbon footprint, designing for circularity, and choosing and using materials responsibly.
Think challenged what a traditional chair could do and how sustainable it could be with thinking of the circular economy: Designed with fewer parts for ease of recycling and even quicker disassembly, Think incorporates more recycled content making up to roughly a third of the chair’s weight. This also allows for easy reassembly.
Think has a third-party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for complete lifecycle environmental impact transparency, has achieved BIFMA LEVEL® 3 certification, and indoor air quality (IAQ) certification through Scientific Certification Systems Indoor Advantage™ Gold. Think was the first product to receive Cradle-to-Cradle certification, and the first Steelcase product to receive a Declare label from the Living Building Challenge.
