Our Journey

Today, sustainable practices in business have become an intrinsic part of overall performance. As these practices evolve, so does the definition of sustainability. We believe sustainability is achieved through an appropriate balance of environmental stewardship, financial stability and community involvement. 

It all started in 1947 when HON began making card files from pieces of scrap metal generated from its contract business. Today, we closely examine every step in the product life cycle to uncover ways to minimize our footprint. This starts with designing and manufacturing products that incorporate recycled content. But it doesn't stop there.

We take our responsibility to the Earth seriously and are committed to sustainable business practices. Our performance in meeting our environmental goals—including pursuing zero waste to landfill, reducing our energy intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and sourcing 100% renewable electricity - demonstrates our commitment to minimizing our environmental footprint.

We believe that sustainability doesn’t have an endpoint and tomorrow should be cleaner, safer, and more responsible than yesterday. Always.
