Sustainability

As awareness of environmental conditions grow, it is becoming more important for members of the business community to develop lifelong strategies toward sustainability. Merge Works considers it our responsibility to build quality products with long lifespans from environmentally friendly materials, reducing and, one day, eliminating our environmental impact for the betterment of our community.

What we do

  • Product Development

      Digital imaging and engineering software help us optimize our layouts for cutting materials such as fabric, laminates and whiteboard, maximizing material usage. It also allows us to manufacture fewer prototypes, conserving raw materials.

  • Manufacturing

      Not only do we control our environmental impact, but we also choose our vendors based on that same commitment to using recycled and sustainable materials. We also feel strongly about choosing suppliers that are regional in order to stimulate the economy around us and reduce freight emissions.

  • Finishes and Materials

      When it comes to raw materials, we research to find materials that are sustainable, environmentally friendly and ensure a quality product with a long lifespan. Merge Works is also committed to making sure the elements that make up those materials meet the highest of environmental quality standards. Many of our materials are certified by Green Labels, recognized in the Office Furniture Industry and LEED Community, and can contribute to LEED points in LEED Commercial Interiors in several categories:
