Which office furniture brands are most eco-friendly?

13th July 2022Blog PostSustainability

Businesses are seeking more ways to reduce their environmental impact, and sustainable furniture can play a big role in achieving this. Chairs, desks and storage in an office can amount to hundreds of kilograms of CO2 emissions, as well as accounting for a significant amount of landfill when being disposed of. Choosing eco-friendly furniture brands can significantly reduce a business’ carbon footprint as well as their overall environmental impact. So, what are the most environmentally friendly office furniture brands?

Herman Miller

Herman Miller is a furniture brand that believes in a sustainable model. Their facilities operate on 100% renewable energy to produce eco-friendly furniture from recycled materials. Their rePurpose program helps reduce the amount of unwanted assets going to landfills by reusing them. Research suggests that 100 offices using the rePurpose program reduces carbon emissions by 37.5 tons and prevents unwanted furniture from ending up in landfill. Herman Miller also maintains FSC certification and only uses renewable, certified and recycled wood.
