Haworth Integrated Palette Approach
LEED: How Haworth Can Help
Haworth will be a sustainable corporation. We engage our employees in more sustainable practices; we initiate and use processes that are neutral or improve our environment; and we utilize our resources in ways that create adaptable and sustainable workspace solutions for our customers. We do all of this globally to protect and restore our environment, create economic value, and support and strengthen our communities.
We have included a link to detailed "Environmental Sheets" for each Haworth product. It details the available LEED points, recycled content and much more useful information.
All Haworth products from our Bruce, Mississippi plant are delivered within a 500 mile radius. Together we will achieve LEED points for products from this plant.
Well-Being + Haworth
The Workplace Design Conversation is Evolving Traditionally, office design focused on just one aspect of the employee—productivity—but of late this conversation is expanding to include a more holistic, person-centered point of view. Today we believe the workspace itself can be used to promote well-being, an enduring state that encompasses wellness of mind and body and can also lead to productive, engaged and healthy employees.
The top three global health issues for workers in a professional setting are:
• Workplace stress
• Lack of physical activity
These health risks not only affect the person, but also the organization, through absenteeism and employee healthcare costs.
How has Haworth helped implement well-being? Haworth has implemented the WELL Building Standard in a number of showrooms, and we work with clients who have also implemented this standard.
