Humanscale Becomes the First Furniture Manufacturer To Be Awarded TRUE® Gold and TRUE® Silver by Green Business Certification Inc. for Zero Waste Efforts

June 2, 2022

New York, New York (June 2, 2022): Humanscale, a global leader in the design of office furniture, announced today that the organization was awarded TRUE® Gold and Silver certifications for all of their production facilities globally. TRUE® stands for Total Resource Use and Efficiency, and is administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) to help facilities define, pursue, and achieve zero waste goals while becoming more resource-efficient. Humanscale is the first furniture manufacturer to achieve TRUE certification.

Humanscale continues to lead the industry on sustainability and transparency as the only furniture manufacturer to achieve zero waste goals while becoming more resource-efficient. In 2020, Humanscale attained 90% waste diversion for all factories—a TRUE® minimum requirement. Since then, Humanscale has set out to obtain TRUE® certification via the furniture brand’s Zero Waste Policy, which is targeting 100% waste diversion from landfills by the year 2030, with an improvement of at least 1% per year until this goal is reached. 


“When we manage our materials carefully enough that none are considered ‘waste,’ we're no longer operating in the linear economy of take-make-waste, and we can begin to make the circular economy a reality,” remarks Jane Abernethy, Chief Sustainability Officer for Humanscale. “Our corporate goals and policies recognize it is no longer sufficient for companies to simply reduce their harmful impacts. Instead, we must take meaningful action to reuse and divert materials waste, recycle hard to recycle materials, and work closely with vendors and suppliers to proactively prevent waste so that the entire industry can benefit.” 


The TRUE® certification for zero waste strives to change the way materials flow through society so that all products are eventually reused and diverted from landfills, incineration (waste-to-energy), and the environment.TRUE® provides best practices and training that enable businesses, property managers, schools, government agencies, and nonprofits to rethink how resources are used. TRUE®-certified projects are environmentally responsible and achieve a minimum of 90% waste diversion. The program helps facilities turn waste into savings, cut greenhouse gas emissions, manage risk, reinvest resources, and create jobs. Humanscale commissioned The Sheward Partnership to serve as TRUE® certification consultants for their four manufacturing facilities and help the organization achieve their goal to become zero waste in their manufacturing process.


“Humanscale recognizes that by pursuing zero waste they are helping us build a sustainable future for all,” said Peter Templeton, President and CEO of U.S. Green Building Council and GBCI. “Waste impacts all facets of business and changing the way that we use resources will deliver public health benefits, reduce our environmental impact, and advance a greener economy.”


To obtain TRUE® certification of their facilities, Humanscale performed a holistic examination of new ways to reuse material, recycle hard to recycle materials, work with suppliers to proactively prevent waste, and develop a culture of responsible materials management within all factories. The process fosters strong total participation, including training of all employees and zero waste relationships with vendors and customers. The whole systems approach enabled Humanscale to obtain a higher level certification than they were expecting within a short timeframe.


As part of the framework outlined above, Humanscale has assigned a Waste Leader at each location. Waste audits are also conducted twice each month to surface any small changes left to make so that the furniture brand can continue to refine their processes.

Meet The Furniture Brand Making Office Chairs With Recycled Fishing Nets

September 28, 2021

The ergonomic designs are not just made for comfort, but also with the hope that they reduce the industry’s footprint and use of potentially-harmful chemicals. During the pandemic, Jane Abernethy, Chief Sustainability Officer at Humanscale, says that their facilities were able to divert 90 percent of waste. And King is rethinking how furniture is going to be done in the future by bringing in electric machines to create molds; rather than having molds done in a separate facility, and then being shipped to a different production site, he wants to bring it all under one roof. It can be faster, more efficient, and less wasteful, he says. READ MORE

10 Simple Ways to Start Living Sustainably Right Now

April 26, 2021

As you read these words, a glacier in central Alaska is rapidly moving 100 times faster than its normal rate. Imagine our collective reaction if anything else—a speeding car or falling rock—was moving 100 times faster than normal. Naturally, we'd fear the unknown. But that's a hypothetical. Let's get more concrete. According to a 2017 report by the Climate Accountability Institute, 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions can be traced back to 100 companies. When we hear or read these alarming facts, it's natural that many of us want to do something. But what can we do on an individual basis to tackle such a dire global dilemma? As consumers, it's our demands (and purchases) of products that dictate the amounts of fossil fuels being burned by these 100 companies. If we (especially if we do it in large masses) demand products that are more eco-friendly, capitalism will bend in our favor. And we must do it, as this task is too big for any one person to sit on the sidelines and watch. Below, AD covers 10 sleek and practical products that would go a long way in launching your new, eco-friendly lifestyle. READ MORE
