Herman Miller Receives Environmental Awards From EPA And State Of Michigan | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Herman Miller, furniture designer and manufacturer, has been designated a Clean Corporate Citizen (C3) by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) for five of its West Michigan manufacturing sites. The company has a total of six manufacturing facilities in the region. Herman Miller’s GreenHouse facility, located in Holland, MI, received the award in 2005.

The C3 program rewards Michigan firms that consistently demonstrate environmental stewardship and pollution prevention. Companies that qualify as a C3 must have a strong and effective environmental management system in place, including a clear statement of the establishment’s commitment to environmental excellence and continual improvement.

Herman Miller also will be honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with its WasteWise Award at the 2006 WasteWise Conference in Arlington, VA on October 19. The company earned recognition from the EPA for its commitment to build or renovate its facilities (leased or owned) to meet at least a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The company currently has a total of nine LEED certified buildings, including its GreenHouse facility, a pilot for the USGBC LEED certification process.

The EPA created the WasteWise Gold Achievement Award in 2005 to recognize waste reduction achievements. Award categories include green buildings, product stewardship, and beneficial use of secondary materials.
