Leading office furniture maker Steelcase Inc. says it has hit a goal of being a carbon neutral company. Now it wants to help its supply base improve their carbon footprint as part of a move toward becoming "carbon negative."
"This means the company expects to reduce absolute emissions from its own operations by 50 percent by 2030 and cut indirect emissions from business travel and waste generated in operations," the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based company said. "Since most of its emissions are considered indirect ... Steelcase plans to engage with suppliers to set their own science-based targets by 2025."
Steelcase doesn't have in-house plastics molding, but it works with a wide range of suppliers for its chairs, desks, office cubicles and other accessories.
