November 16, 2023 – Haworth launched an online Ecomedes platform that provides easy access to sustainability information for almost 350 products.
“It’s important that Haworth’s sustainability journey make it easy for our customers to achieve their goals,” said Dominic Daunter, Haworth Global Innovation, Design and Sustainability Director. “Our industry has a strong, historical desire for sustainable products and stakeholders constantly strive for better ways to build out spaces. This Ecomedes tool is a powerful connection towards this goal.”
Haworth’s Ecomedes site is free and allows users to specify products by considering environmental goals and third-party standards by evaluating, measuring and tracking sustainability impact. Information is available for almost 350 Haworth products across the brand portfolio, including seating, tables, workspaces, architectural interiors, casegoods, privacy/phone booths, lighting and accessories. Product evaluation can also be made by USGBC, IWBI, ILFI and GBI rating systems, as well as certifications like BIFMA LEVEL, C2C Certified, FSC and GREENGUARD.
"We applaud Haworth's commitment to sustainability and are excited they have selected Ecomedes to provide accurate and up-to-date sustainability product information.
