IT'S UP TO ALL OF US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The ever-growing deluge of plastic pollution in our oceans has a tremendous impact on human health and on the health of our natural environment.
- 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year.
- 640,000 tons of fishing nets enter the ocean each year.
- The amount of plastic pollution in the ocean will surpass the amount of fish by 2050 if nothing changes.
- Fishing nets are identified as the most harmful form of ocean plastic pollution.
A Net Positive Product
Smart Ocean is the embodiment of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Each chair incorporates almost 2 pounds. of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product certified — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.
The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.
Custom Fit Technology
Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in black frame) offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions or manual adjustments.
Recycling and repurposing plastic keeps it out of the ocean and helps to mitigate many environmental issues.
In addition to partnering with Bureo to protect our oceans, Humanscale is a founding partner of the Next Wave Initiative. Led by Lonely Whale, this consortium includes companies such as Dell and GM and is focused on developing a distribution web that would support the reuse and repurposing of plastic before it ever reaches the ocean.
Net Positive Products
We are proud to be the first company ever to offer any product–let alone 26–that is certified climate, energy and water positive.
26 of our products have been certified net positive – meaning any time they are made, the planet is measurably better off.
"Less bad isn't good enough."
Chief Sustainability Officer, Humanscale
We carefully and constantly evaluate our impact on the Earth.
Our approach to product development and manufacturing embodies our mission to minimize our impacts. We believe that the best designs in the world achieve more with less, so we act accordingly. Humanscale products prioritize simplicity, which is apparent in their forms.
We use fewer parts and recyclable materials such as aluminium and steel in our products to limit their potential impact. In particular, our task chairs use a sophisticated weight-sensitive recline mechanism that offers intuitive functionality, thereby reducing the overall number of knobs, levers and parts required to make the chair work. Our environmental philosophy is taken into account at every stage of product development through our Design For Environment process. The Durability and Upgradeability of products is also considered - we build products to last, so they won't need to be replaced often.
But our product design is only the beginning of our environmental sustainability efforts. We also examine our supply chain, manufacturing facilities, showrooms and offices to evaluate our evolution in minimizing our impact. We monitor our greenhouse gas emissions, waste, energy use and other key metrics that indicate our progress.
On a global level, Humanscale is a member of the U.N. Global Compact, which aligns businesses with common goals of improving labour conditions, protecting human rights, preventing anti-corruption practices and promoting environmental efforts. We are also committed to responsible sourcing of raw materials. It is our policy to refrain from sourcing minerals from conflict mines in or around the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Sustainability in action
We've continued to focus our efforts to go beyond sustainability — to aim for an overall Net Positive impact on the earth. This goal led us to innovate in our operations, design with sustainability as the source, and advocate for stronger standards across our industry.
Our approach to product development and manufacturing embodies our mission to minimize our impacts. We believe that the best designs in the world achieve more with less, so we act accordingly.
In sustainability, footprints are a measure of the damage caused to the environment. Handprints, contrastingly, are a measure of the positive impact brought to the environment. When added together, the determine an organization’s net impact – they show us whether we’re doing more good than harm, and leaving the world better off.
At Humanscale, we’ve long believed in using healthy materials. We also strongly believe that furniture products should have ingredients labels – much like food – that clearly disclose what they’re made of. We currently own 60% of Declare labels and 54% of Health Product Declarations that exist in the entire furniture industry.
We take wildlife conservation seriously because we believe in minimizing our impact on the Earth. A leader in sustainability, Humanscale not only reduces our own carbon footprint, but also reverses the environmental impacts of others.
