Certifications & Approach
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.
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.
Krug has achieved Level®—a comprehensive multi-attribute sustainability standard focused on the environmental and social impacts of the life cycle of furniture—on all our products.
The LEED Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Krug products are Leed certified in a variety of categories.
As part of the comprehensive management of our environmental processes, we ensure that materials used to assemble our product or integrated into them do not contribute or in any way present undue health or safety hazards to staff or the environment.
Krug strives to minimize the use of energy in its operations and move towards the use of renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our goal is to eventually become climate neutral in our energy-use.
Many Krug products are made with recyclable materials. We have a detailed document available to help determine which recycling or disposal options work best for your product.
END OF LIFE & RECOVERY OPTIONS
Many items discarded 50 years ago are still sitting in landfills today. We believe in donating, repurposing, and recycling furniture when you are done using it. We have a list of end of life options to help determine what works best for your product.
For over 140 years, Krug’s reputation has been built on the principles of integrity and dignity in its relations with its staff, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which it operates. We release a thorough social responsibility report each year.
