With over 30 years of experience in the commercial furniture industry and over 12,000 projects completed, InterWork knows that sustainability takes teamwork. Whether communicating with other businesses, outlining options for our clients, or fundamentally restructuring our own company towards sustainability, we’re doing everything we can to lead the way.
Last year, we diverted over one million pounds of office assets away from landfills and into new ownership, which effectively reduced CO2 emissions by more than 1,700 tons.
Those are significant steps forward, but our goals don’t stop there. To deliver a more sustainable future for ourselves and our clients, we are working toward:
- A landfill diversion rate of 90% or greater on all decommission projects
- Leveraging our network of broker-dealers, recycling centers, and charitable partners to achieve a landfill diversion rate of 100% for office assets wherever possible
- Designing innovative forums and documentation of diversion rates to better understand areas of success and improvement
- Partnership and client agreements to craft sustainability plans that meet specific organizations’ goals and Corporate Social Responsibility targets.
By pursuing these goals and holding ourselves accountable through proof of donations, dispersal breakdowns, and CO2 reduction metrics, InterWork strives to bring the inner workings of the industry to the forefront so we can all work toward a more sustainable future, together.
