Teknion is a international furniture manufacture offering an entire scope of products for the built environment. Advancing sustainability has always been a cultural imperative within our company, supported at both an individual and corporate level. The challenge moving forward is to find the opportunities, choose the right initiatives, and to not just push the narrative, but also the reality of sustainability forward. Our priorities as a manufacturer are to minimize the environmental impact of our activities, and to provide educational outreach to advance sustainability for our industry.Most of our environmental impacts relate to the design and manufacture of our products – the materials we use, how products are designed, made and transported, and how they perform in our customers’ spaces. Eighty percent of our component parts are manufactured in-house. This affords us unprecedented control of our manufacturing process, enabling us to challenge the status quo and go well beyond the minimum requirements for third-party certification.
