Helping To Make A Greener World: Herman Miller Partners With ecoScorecard

Herman Miller is the first major contract furniture manufacturer to incorporate ecoScorecard in its product catalogue to deliver the environmental documentation end users need. The company will be demonstrating ecoScorecard functionality to visitors in its NeoCon 2010 showroom.

ecoScorecard is a free, web-based technology platform that gives product manufacturers the ability to provide environmental information and sustainability documentation about products for all major third-party rating systems.

“Herman Miller realizes that sustainability is a shared responsibility,” said Martin Flaherty, president of ecoScorecard. “By simplifying the rating systems documentation process and identifying product environmental metrics, the ecoScorecard tool allows Herman Miller and product specifiers to work together to achieve sustainability goals.”

Paul Murray, Director of Environment, Health and Safety at Herman Miller, added, “As a founding member of the US Green Building Council, Herman Miller has always believed anything we can do to help make green building easier for everyone is a good thing. While our current LEED summary sheets provide the required information to manually calculate and submit a project to the USGBC, we recognize it is a time consuming effort. Herman Miller chose ecoScorecard to make the process easier and we hope that users find it a much more empowering experience.”

  1. It’s great that these colelges are making the efforts to go green. However, these kinds of articles often overlook the impact that elevators have, including potential LEED points for indoor air quality and materials. SnapCab’s customers (including colelges and universities)are ahead of the curve in this area, as we are always pushing the bar higher.
