Product Responsibility

At Allsteel, we design our products to be durable and long-lasting, which leads to a long, useful life. Replaceable parts are available to repair existing products, which helps decrease the environmental and social impacts of raw materials extraction and energy use to produce new products.

    Design for Environment (DfE)

    The development stage of a new product sets the course for how it will later impact the environment. Using the Design for Environment scorecard, we plan for a product’s long-term fate. Packaging, chemical content, renewable materials, and recyclability of products become important additions to the product design process. Replaceable parts are available to repair existing products, which helps decrease the environmental and social impacts of raw materials extraction and energy use to produce new products.

  • Disassembly Diagrams

    Disassembly Diagrams

    It’s a challenge to predict where durable furniture will end up after its long lifetime, but Allsteel is working to keep our furniture out of landfills. One way to encourage the future recycling of our products is to make disassembly diagrams publicly available. These diagrams include identification of the materials in each component part so future recyclers can turn old materials into new.

    ANEW End-of-Life Program

    Allsteel has created an end-of-life referral program for our customers, using ANEW. ANEW is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that can provide a sustainable disposition solution for surplus contract office furniture. By using ANEW, our clients can extend their furniture’s useful life through repurposing, help local and national charitable organizations through donation, divert most materials from the landfill through recycling, and receive a tax deduction in the process.
