Teknion is providing the people, skills and services to ensure maximum financial and social benefits with minimum environmental impact for customers’ decommissioned furniture. Each year, they expand organizational goals and objectives to support the reduction of impacts on the environment.
Their Divert Program is a service that provides customers an option to sell, donate, and/or recycle their old furniture. One of Teknion’s many initiatives is to bundle the cardboard and plastic packaging, to reduce freight space and provide more opportunities to responsibly recycle waste.
For their annual Earth Day celebration, their primary challenge is making a place for bees. Four of Teknion’s workplace products – Journal casegoods, Livello Counterbalance Height-Adjustable Worktable, Thesis Learning and Library Tables, and Variable Multi-Purpose Seating earned 2015 Green Good Design Awards.
