More than 20 products manufactured by Steelcase, Inc. received high marks for their ability to protect indoor air quality. The materials used to make the company's Think chair, for example, met strict emissions and air quality testing standards and received a gold certification from Scientific Certification Systems, an independent reviewer of environmental, food quality, and other claims.
The products are an example of the types of so-called clean technologies that West Michigan companies, particularly office-furniture makers, are innovating as they embrace the philosophy of sustainable business.
"Indoor air quality is an environmental issue that Steelcase takes very seriously and our product development process is dedicated to creating low-emitting products that meet critical industry standards and are not detrimental to the health of our customers," said Jeff Musculus, manager of product development test labs and codes for Steelcase.
