LEED Certification

Whether you have just begun to explore ways to protect the environment through green product choices, or are pursuing LEED certification for your facility, we will bring the necessary product portfolio and experience to bear. Working with you and your design team, we can help you achieve your green goals.

Steelcase, Atmosphere Commercial Interiors’ major manufacturer partner, helps clients seeking LEED certification identify products and programs that can contribute to LEED criteria in the categories of Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation (Ergonomics Training, Sustainability Training, and Product Innovation).

Packaging and Packing Materials

Our furniture disposal program is environmentally friendly and can support sustainable practices, including LEED and B3 requirements. Our experience, and relationships with local environmental organizations, allow us to offer unique disposal solutions to avoid landfill including brokerage, charitable donations, liquidation and recycling.

Whenever possible, we request that product ship direct to the project site and be blanket wrapped to minimize the amount of cardboard used. All packaging and trash is removed from project sites daily and returned to the warehouses for proper recycling and disposition. Items that come palletized are un-crated and the pallets are recycled.

Our decommissioning services of taking apart furnishings and breaking them into their core materials for proper recycling are at the core of our program (for example, products are removed from site and properly recycled instead of going to a landfill).

Our Green Practices

We  continuously seek green business practices that make a noticeable and meaningful impact.

Reduce Paper & Plastic Footprint

  • Reduce waste by employing paperless practices in all departments.
  • Provide a virtual catalog library, MyResource Library, which is maintained directly by our suppliers.
  • Purchase sustainably sourced swag and gifts – emphasize useful and plastic-free items, or provide gift cards for local businesses.

Reduce Carbon Footprint

  • Encourage mass transit use and offer discounts where applicable.
  • Supply all team members with remote technology, to allow work to happen wherever it needs to, including on a client’s site, at home, or while traveling. This strategy increases the opportunities to work smartly and efficiently.
  • Reduce our carbon footprint by avoiding travel, due to high quality video-conferencing capabilities in all offices.

Reduce Energy Consumption

  • Turn off monitors during non-business hours.
  • Use LED lighting throughout our facilities.
  • ‘Smart’ sound-masking system that self-adjusts based on ambient noise levels
  • Incorporate plants where possible to help improve air quality.

Reuse

  • Reuse existing furniture during facility renovations.
  • Equip our café spaces with reusable dishes and supplies.

Recycle

  • Equip our facilities with waste and recycling receptacles.
