Green Standards sustainably manages the resale, recycling, and donation of office furniture and equipment across North America.
Millions of tons of office furniture and equipment are sent to landfill each year in North America. We’re here to change that. By working with forward-thinking corporations we’re able to recover usable resources and repurpose valuable products to the benefit of businesses, the environment and communities across North America.
Our sustainable decommission program has diverted 73,000+ tons of surplus furniture and equipment from landfill and donated more than $31 million worth of in-kind donations to 5,000+ non-profits across North America since inception.
The 73,000+ tons diverted equals more than 175,000 metric tons of CO2e emissions reduced with a 98.6% landfill diversion rate on more than 1,500 projects.
