At HON, we take our responsibility to the earth seriously. We take advantage of every step in the product life cycle to minimize our environmental footprint. It starts with designing and manufacturing products that incorporate recycled content whenever possible. We have also significantly reduced the amount of packaging and waste involved in the transportation and installation of our products. It doesn't begin and end with us. We work with our suppliers, dealers and our customers to continually identify areas for environmental improvement. At HON, environmental stewardship is not a new idea, it’s at the core of everything we do.
