Today, sustainable practices in business have become an intrinsic part of overall performance. As these practices evolve, so does the definition of sustainability. We believe sustainability is achieved through an appropriate balance of environmental stewardship, financial stability and community involvement.
It all started in 1947 when HON began making card files from pieces of scrap metal generated from its contract business. Today, we closely examine every step in the product life cycle to uncover ways to minimize our footprint. This starts with designing and manufacturing products that incorporate recycled content. But it doesn't stop there.
We take our responsibility to the Earth seriously and are committed to sustainable business practices. Our performance in meeting our environmental goals—related to energy efficiency, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water intake, and waste to landfills demonstrates our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint.
We believe that implementing cost-effective, more sustainable solutions is a powerful and ongoing source of business value.
Lean Leads to Green
HON manufacturing systems maximize the use of raw materials and ensure efficient use of natural resources to reduce not only our environmental footprint, but yours as well. We are relentless in removing waste in the production process and in everything we do.
We choose materials carefully to ensure minimum indoor air emissions and maximize your ability to return materials to the resource stream once they have served their intended purpose.
