GREENGUARD

All our seating products have received GREENGUARD Certification. They have met UL Environment’s rigorous testing requirements and standards for low-emitting products, which contributes to improved indoor air quality.

FSC®

Krug manufacturing facilities have received Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification, signifying that the growth, harvesting and production of goods are achieved through responsible forestry. Any non-certified wood used in an FSC-certified product must come from controlled sources in accordance to FSC requirements.
