Adding it up
Herman Miller was a sponsor of the Metropolis Perspective: Sustainability 2021 Symposium.
Teaming up with NextWave, a consortium of likeminded companies, Herman Miller is working to further magnify their impact by creating demand and establishing supply chains for reclaimed ocean-bound plastic for industrial use. In locations like India and Indonesia, where plastic pollution is a major problem, Herman Miller and other NextWave member companies collaborate with their supply chain partners to collect ocean-bound plastic. The material is then ground, washed, and pelletized before being reengineered into useful products. Employing locals and working with OceanCycle—a social enterprise company—Herman Miller’s recycling efforts have not only an environmental benefit, but do social good, investing in coastal communities at the highest risk for plastic pollution.
