Our design for the environment approach includes our support of our manufacturers active membership in voluntary programs such as the U.S. Green Building Council, the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from industry and government working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places.
We’re also motivated to help clients in achieving GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification. Currently we carry, more than 20 product lines that are GREENGUARD certified. GREENGUARD tested furniture is part of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED-CI Program. This means that specifying certain United Interiors furnishings can contribute LEED-CI points for indoor environmental quality.
In considering the finite resources of our planet, the consequences for the health of people and communities, and a foreseeable future of constant change in the workplace and economy—we’ve always got to remain ready, willing, and able to do more. Yes, the efforts we’ve made have the clear intention of minimizing our impacts on the planet in order to preserve a healthy world for future generations. But there’s a very practical, down-to-earth, today aspect to our thinking, too. Ultimately, the more we do in the area of sustainability, the more it helps you to achieve your environmental aims.
