Herman Miller to be environmentally-neutral by 2020

Tuesday 16 September 2008

By 2020 Herman Miller hopes to be an environmentally neutral company. That means no harmful air emissions, no hazardous waste, no landfill waste, and getting electricity from alternative sources.

Sound impossible? Well, the Zeeland-based furniture company with around 1,500 employees in Spring Lake Township, is well on its way.

Herman Miller\'s overall air emissions has dropped 87 percent since 1994 — from 226 tons to 33.53 tons — according to Environmental Specialist Diane Bunse. Hazardous waste and landfill waste have been reduced by similar amounts.

\"It\'s just what we\'ve done — it\'s been part of the culture here,\" Bunse said. \"I could see it when I first came here (21 years ago) in the efforts to respect the environment in all the things we do.\"

The company purchases 51,000 megawatt hours of renewable energy credits and 28,000 from the Harvest Wind Farm in Huron County. Herman Miller is the largest user of the facility, Bunse said.
