Environmental stewardship and sustainability are core values at OpenSquare. As we work with architects, designers and customers, we look for environmentally sound choices, from product design to manufacturing, maintenance, refurbishment and end-of-life disposition.
OpenSquare partners with Steelcase in a highly comprehensive end-of-use program. The Steelcase Environmental Partnership Program allows customers the choice of donating, refurbishing, reselling or recycling their retired workspace furnishings. The program works extensively with furniture recycling and reuse programs that can match unneeded office furnishings with non-profit groups around the world.
OpenSquare also recognizes a corporate obligation to operate in earth-friendly ways. We recycle tons of materials from jobsites and our own warehouses each year. We use Electronic Document Management to store documents, reducing paper consumption significantly. We have adopted more energy-efficient lighting and we are acquiring fuel-efficient, cleaner-burning company vehicles.
