Haworth releases Corporate Social Responsibility report

 

Haworth aims to alleviate the building sector’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, through office furniture and workspace solutions. The analysis not only pinpoints the environmental problems but also the sustainable fixes. This includes the brand’s circular design principles that focus product development on the end-of-life, and practices like environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

Illustrating the impact of interior design on climate change

 

As more development is undertaken to tackle the climate crisis, there’s a new understanding of the impact that interior designers have on the world. Furniture expert Haworth strives for their sustainability goals by converting their findings from the Corporate Social Responsibility report into environmentally-centered actions. As the building sector produces 39% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, the brand has taken it upon themselves to make strides in reducing their footprint by managing the cradle-to-grave lifecycle of their products. Along with improving the end-of-life of their items, the company has established social responsibility initiatives to promote inclusion, diversity, well-being and community involvement.

Circular solutions for customers

 

Haworth’s commitment to sustainability and social responsibility is evident in their product offerings. The furniture group has integrated sustainable design principles into its products, using eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes. Product development projects, such as the Zody II and Zody LX task chairs and Cardigan Lounge, implement circular design as a foundational principle. The product ‘End-of-Life Program’ supports ways to relocate, clean, repair, refurbish, remanufacture, and recycle used furniture.

Haworth’s dedication to realizing a sustainable future

 

Haworth’s CSR report is not all doom and gloom; the analysis gives real-case examples that enable a more sustainable future. Circular solutions, whether individual products or specific materials, are showcased, and relate back to the manufacturer’s sustainability goals. The report also serves as an inspiration for other companies in the building and interior industry to follow.
