2Committed to Sustainability.

Making sustainable office furniture solutions is our corporate commitment and a never-ending journey. Since introducing HNI's environmental management system, we have implemented a comprehensive sustainability program and invested in the people, processes, and tools needed to consistently reduce the environmental impact of our production.

State-of-the art manufacturing
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and processes are designed to drive sustainability. The roof of our factory features a transparent design to maximize the use of natural light and reduce energy consumption. Our use of automation reduces energy consumption and saves electricity throughout our processes. The factory’s central dust extraction system separates air and powder to filter out powder and particulates, leaving only clean air. Our wastewater filtration system eliminates all wastewater discharges. We also redirect over 4,000 tons of scrap material to recycling plants annually; 90% of which is reused to generate offsite renewable energy.

Sustainable product design
We strive to design our products in a way that reduces their environmental impact throughout their lifecycles. We source and use sustainable materials that move our manufacturing process toward full compliance with all international standards and certifications such as ANSI/BIFMA, Greenguard, and GB that contribute to LEED and WELL points. Most components we use, such as E0 particleboards, steel and aluminum, are 100% recyclable.

Controls across the supply chain
We strictly control all aspects of our supply chain, partnering solely with quality material suppliers able to meet our requirements. We also re-engineered our packaging design to reduce both packaging and transportation waste, and we use recycled materials for packaging.

3Co-Creating Innovative Solutions with Customers.

For us a product is never just a product. We know that our customers have insights, opinions and needs that all must be heard to produce a superior solution in the creation of a workplace environment. We utilize three co-creation platforms to engage all stakeholders in a co-creative journey to arrive at the perfect workplace environment.

Collaborative Product Development
We invite our customer’s stakeholders to participate in facilitated workshops to create a rich canvas of ideas, concepts, needs, and desires. With our experience and resources, combined with our customer input, we create 3D simulations, functional prototypes and pricing options that help our customer arrive at a unique and optimized solution for them.

Divergent User Interview
Our knowledgeable design specialists visit our customers’ workplaces to talk to a broad spectrum of users. We ask them what works and what doesn’t in an open divergent interview approach. We listen to their needs and desires. From this we gain a deep understanding of their collective unmet needs and aspirations that fuel our new product development.

Anytime-Anywhere Online Feedback
In today’s world not every stakeholder is comfortable speaking up about their needs and aspirations. By using social media and other online tools we encourage passive stakeholders to become active stakeholders in the co-creation of the perfect workplace solution.

We see our customer as all stakeholders in the co-creation process. Our co-creative platforms put our client in the front seat, driving position on the journey to reach the perfect workplace solution.

4Global Capability Meets Local Excellence.

We expanded our business presence to over 200 service locations across 20 countries in Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and America. Locations include all major cities in China and Singapore. Multinational corporate clients rely on our ability to execute their global standards in multiple countries. Customers in these countries receive instant local support and the full benefit of our global expertise.
