At Office Environments, we believe that everyone has a responsibility to conduct business in a conscientious manner.

“Herman Miller will be a good corporate neighbor by being a good steward of the environment.” —D.J. De Pree, founder, Herman Miller, Inc.

Herman Miller’s interest in the environment began with the strong convictions of its founder, D.J. De Pree, who believed that corporations, like people, should see themselves as stewards. This commitment to the environment has taken shape through almost 50 years of programs, initiatives, and the many contributions of individuals and teams. During that time, concern for the environment has become part of Herman Miller corporate life, from architecture to product design to operations.

In 2004, Herman Miller put into place a set of environmental goals that included a zero operational footprint. In the decade since, the company has sharpened its goals around the smart use of resources, eco-inspired design, and becoming community-driven. Its new 10-year sustainability strategy—Earthright—begins with three principles: positive transparency, products as living things, and becoming greener together.

As a part of the Herman Miller network, Office Environments has adopted these same principles. We have aligned ourselves with manufactures that are good stewards of the environment and we encourage you to consider that fact in your evaluation of furniture.
