Introduction

Herman Miller-one of the four largest Suppliers in office furniture

Things That Matter at Herman Miller-Curiosity & Exploration,


Design, A Better World, Eco-design

They achieve sustainability through saving materials, energy efficient


manufacturing, recycled content and recyclable content, design for
disassembly

The challenge- improving material chemistry in the range of green


chemicals and materials on market is very limited

Constantly improving in the process and simultaneously keeping


profits intact is the biggest challenge

Why TPU

Company known for its progressive culture which includes


innovation, creativity, inclusiveness, etc.
Sending a right message and setting a good perception to the
clients
Environmental Quality Action Team(EQAT) and Design for
Environment(DfE) are some of the key initiatives focussing on
the same theme
Vital for industry perception, value proposition and customer
expectations
Bringing all red and orange coded items to yellow and green
categories
TPU, being recyclable, will help reduce future material costs in
the long run

Why not PVC

Produces toxins during manufacturing process


Causes damage to the environment and harms the health of
employees
PVC is highly toxic and is highly risky for manufacturing
processes
Use of PVC, being environmentally sustainable, is against the
philosophy of sustainability of the organization
Damage brand and reputation

Assessment on the implementation


of C2C protocol

Appointed a senior advisory team comprising representatives of all


departments
Assigning professionals to work with MBDC in developing practical
means of CDC design process
Display of patience in working for 3 years on the design process and
not rushing ahead
Creation of DfE team tasked with developing evaluation standards for
its various products developed from the manufacturing process
Changing of the processes in Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Engineering
to implement C2C
Getting the nod from the suppliers by conveying the benefits and
threating to end the relationship- showing complete dedication to the
C2C model

Reasons behind undertaking the


strategic environmental initiative

Environmental
goal
to
become
a
sustainable
businessmanufacturing the products without reducing the capacity of
environment to provide for future generations
Triple bottom Line Philosophy
Environmental leader in industry
Positioning to consumers as a environmentally conscious brand
The way ahead- stringent environmental norms in the future would
anyhow make this necessary. So why not go ahead with it now,
thereby leveraging the reduction in costs due to efficient processes
Reduce pollution and waste and makes products which are
recyclable
Falls
towards
companys
goals
of
being
socially
and
environmentally responsible

CONCLUSIONS

Companys goals and philosophy are in line with the


decision to use TPU

May appear risky in the short term but C2C protocol will
be a huge success in the long term
Will path the way to a closed loop system , a recyclable
and sustainable system
