NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Humanscale, the leading manufacturer of ergonomic tools for the workspace, is announcing five new sustainability initiatives that aid in its mission to create a net positive impact on the earth. The company will also host an Earth Day event in its New Jersey facility to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable design and manufacturing and to educate the local community.
Over five years ago, Humanscale Founder and CEO Robert King hired Sustainability Officer Jane Abernethy to transform Humanscale’s sustainability program into a globally recognized model of excellence. King comments, “Being a net positive manufacturer is not only about reducing harm, but about actively making a positive impact on our communities and the environment. Abernethy adds, “We want factories to be like trees and companies to be like a forest. A tree’s job is to grow and thrive. It uses some resources, but it gives back more than it takes.”
