About Ergoworks: Environmental Commitment

Environmental Initiatives

 

Teknion is committed to minimizing the environmental footprint of itself and clients. Small steps and actions over time become a history of responsible achievement, and a record of the process of change. They have invested in sustainable economic practices, as an integrated approach towards innovation, collaboration and education.

 

Sustainability is built into every aspect of what they do; they built their foundation on these fundamental tools:

 

  • Implementing DfE principles in their product development process
  • Attaining GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Children & Schools certification for their major products
  • Investing in ISO 14001, FSC, BIFMA e-3 level certifications for their worldwide manufacturing facilities
  • Aligning with LEED principles and their rating and certification program
  • Partnering with third-party resources for end-of-life strategies
  • Sharing their understanding with others through educational forums

 

Teknion use these fundamentals to advance their understanding and to move forward. Each year, Teknion refines its objectives through its Environmental Charter, continually setting goals that reduce environmental impact, and tracking the results.

 

Their ultimate goal is viewed as a long-term commitment involving every aspect of their company. Teknion voluntarily sets mandates for environmental initiatives; they are not satisfied with merely meeting regulatory and legislative requirements. They know that what’s good for the environment is good for all of us – for the environment, the economy and society.
