Humanscale's Sustainability Team To Speak at Living Product Expo 2019
Here at Humanscale, we are committed to positively impacting our world with everything we do. This includes partnering with like-minded companies and organizations, and sharing our learnings with the community at large. We are excited to be participating in three talks at the upcoming Living Product Expo, hosted by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). The ILFI is an environment-focused nonprofit that’s pushing our industry towards sustainability. In fact, they started some of the most rigorous sustainability programs, including the Living Product Challenge and Declare labels. Did you know that Humanscale is the only manufacturer to achieve the full Living Product Challenge, and has currently published 60% of Declare labels that exist in the entire furniture industry? Key members of our Sustainability team, including CSO Jane Abernethy, will be discussing a variety of initiatives at the Expo. Here’s a breakdown of each talk:
