“At Herman Miller we believe the quality of human life is dependent on both economic vitality and a healthy, sustainable natural environment. We do not see these goals as mutually exclusive, but inextricably linked. Our collective future depends on meeting the needs and aspirations of a growing global population, while enhancing and protecting the ecosystem on which all life depends.
More than ever, I believe now is the time to step up to—not shy away from—the challenges posed by climate change. That’s why Herman Miller has pledged to join forces with Bloomberg Philanthropies to support climate action to meet the Paris Agreement.
In the absence of leadership at the Federal level, our role as good stewards of the environment is more critical than ever. We will continue to do our part to hold warming below 2°C by designing to the highest environmental standards, using water responsibly, diverting waste from landfills, pursuing reduced energy intensity, and employing renewables. All of us at Herman Miller remain fully committed to our environmental targets and enabling a prosperous future for generations to come.” —Brian Walker, CEO
