For more than 100 years, our brands have worked to improve spaces—and the world around us. We believe that together we can do more.
Doing our part for a better world
We embed sustainable thinking into company culture, so the health of our planet drives business decisions, informs eco-friendly solutions, and inspires our people to leave the world better than we found it.
Early innovations established MillerKnoll brands as pioneers in sustainability. In 1953, sustainability became a key mission for Herman Miller. In 1978, Knoll hired a full-time environmental engineer. These timelines are a snapshot of our brands’ accomplishments since.
Our 2030 sustainability goals
Sustainable design leads to more inspiring products, as well as a culture of people committed to doing things right. Our goals for 2030 continue our collective’s tradition of designing for a world we all want to live in.
Design out waste
We aim to eliminate waste from our processes, including single-use plastic packaging and waste in landfills, air emissions, and water use.
Reduce carbon footprint
We aim to reduce carbon emissions from our products and operations by 50 percent, building off our 7,000-ton carbon reduction by mid-2023.
Source better materials
Materials comprise over 50 percent of the carbon footprint of our products. We want to source them better.
