At Standing Desk ConverterTM, we have a strong commitment to doing everything we can to protect the environment through sustainable, green practices, even if that often translates into additional short term expenses of money, time and manpower. We strongly believe that the long term protection of this planet’s natural resources, limited as they are, matters more than increasing our profit no matter the cost.
Our manufacturing process, whether it’s for a simple accessory or for a more complex motorized standing desk or desktop converter, is designed so as to have a minimal impact on the environment. Using only locally sourced, sustainable materials and 100% recycled American steel, we take active steps to ensure that our entire manufacturing and shipping process is environmentally-friendly, from the design to the finished product and the packaging we use for deliveries. Our wood is sourced only from sustainable forests, and our products are associated with reputable certifications or programs such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).
The Standing Desk ConverterTM products are designed so as to ensure minimal material waste, while automated machining eliminates unnecessary use of energy. Our manufacturing facilities are also optimized so as to be as energy efficient as possible while minimizing waste at the same time. With simple practices such as using 95% natural light in our offices and manufacturing facilities, enforcing a company-wide recycling program, establishing a paperless ordering system, we have already succeeded in decreasing our electricity consumption significantly. To further minimize waste, we build each power converter or motorized standing desk once an actual order has been received, therefore reducing unnecessary warehouse inventory or storage use. Every product we make is designed and built to last a lifetime.
To consistently attain our sustainability goals and to maintain our credibility and accountability, we work closely with organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), and Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA). We only work with vendors who share our beliefs and commitment to green practices and processes.
We believe that the environment, our customers and our community deserve nothing short of the great attention and care we put into our manufacturing process every step of the way, with the end goal of offering products that are functional, durable and sustainable.
