Seven More Furnishing Companies Pass Environmental Audits

furniture.jpgThe American Home Furnishings Alliance announced that seven more of its members have implemented the organization’s Enhancing Furniture’s Environmental Culture program with the goal of reaching environmental improvements at domestic manufacturing facilities, Home Furnishings Business reports.

The seven members are: C.R. Laine; Hickory Chair; Lea Ins.; American Drew; Kincaid’s Hudson and Taylorsville plants; and Vaughan-Bassett.

Companies need to analyze and understand the environmental impact of its processes, raw materials and finished products on a facility-by-facility basis to become EFEC-registered.

A new national sustainability standard for office furniture makers, developed jointly by NSF and the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association, may be finalized by early October.

According to a case study by Forrester Research, Herman Miller has reduced landfill waste by 80 percent and hazardous waste by 91 percent. The company has also seen 32 percent return on investment in energy efficiency investments.
