For over 100 years, MillerKnoll and its brands have been dedicated to not just improving spaces but the world around us. We believe that together we can do more. More for our planet and more for our people.
MillerKnoll works with its global partners and brands to reduce their carbon footprint, design out waste, and source better materials.
Building on the progress and legacies of Herman Miller, Knoll, and their collective of global brands, MillerKnoll will leverage these sustainability goals—from product design to building operations—for the next decade.
To help improve the health of our planet and global communities, the company plans to:
- Reduce Carbon Footprint: Reduce the carbon footprint from its products and operations by 50% and aim to reduce the carbon footprint of its suppliers.
- Design Out Waste: Stop using single-use plastics and substantially reduce all types of waste.
- Source Better Materials: Use 50% or more recycled content and purchase materials that are responsibly and sustainably produced.
In July 2021, Herman Miller and Knoll came together to form MillerKnoll, a collective of dynamic brands and one of the largest and most influential modern design companies in the world. As the preeminent leader in modern design, the company is helping customers reimagine the future of work and build destination spaces. MillerKnoll is focused on building a more sustainable and equitable future with greater impact. The new goals will apply across the collective of brands.
"We believe that business should be a force for good and out teams work hard every day to drive results for our shareholders, our communities, and our planet. We have focused on designing sustainably for decades. I'm eager to see the progress we'll make as the full collective of MillerKnoll brands." - Andi Owen, CEO, MillerKnoll
DIRTT's Culture of Sustainability
DIRTT’s unique culture is the foundation that we are built upon. We foster a culture of empowerment. Employees are encouraged to find sustainable solutions and make decisions to ensure each client has an outstanding experience. We pride ourselves
in our open and collaborative work environment, creating a space that allows for creativity and innovation.
DIRTT supports a paperless culture by using all electronic marketing tools without printed materials, further diminishing environmental impacts. We use our electronic newsletters and communications to educate employees on various sustainability programs and share tips on how to be a sustainable DIRTTbag.
Construction is globally the biggest consumer of raw materials. Buildings, and particularly the construction of them, are responsible for 35% of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada. It’s time to build better. And like most good things in life, it’s what’s inside that counts most.
Our mission is to create personalized, high-performance spaces that are environmentally sustainable during their construction and over a long and productive lifecycle. This approach happens to coincide with providing a powerful return on your investment. Because we aren’t Doing It OK This Time. We’re Doing It Right This Time so you can too.
