Standing Desk Converter has a strong belief in doing our part to protect the environment, despite the additional short term expenses of time, money, and manpower. We believe that the long-term protection of our planet’s limited natural resources is more important than increasing our profit margins.
We are committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship by manufacturing products with a minimal impact on the environment. We recognize the potential impact our processes and products have on the earth, so we actively pursue every avenue of manufacturing sustainability and make it part of our company culture. Every product we manufacture uses the finest, locally sourced materials and is built to last a lifetime.
We believe that third party verification is a necessary step in maintaining accountability and credibility throughout our organization. Working with organizations such as the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA)-- and only doing business with vendors that do the same -- allows us to consistently maintain our sustainability goals.
Every facet of our manufacturing process, supply chain, and product lifecycle undergoes strict scrutiny to ensure top ratings in each field. Some of the certifications and programs our wood products are associated with include the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). We also use only 100% recycled American steel for all of the frames and sheet metal components of our furniture.
