Sustainabilty

 

Statement

 

For more than 60 years, HPFi® (High Point Furniture Industries) has been building furniture in the United States with respect to our environment and our community. As a world-class manufacturing operation, we strive to reduce and to eliminate impact on our environment. We recycle and reuse wherever possible. When viable and acceptable to our customers, we incorporate recycled and recyclable materials into our finished products.

  • Laminated panels used in our casegood products come from suppliers that meet Sustainable Forestry Initiatives (SFI) standards and/or Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). The boards exceed 80% pre-consumer recycled wood fibers and conform to California Air Resource Board (CARB ATCM Phase II) regulations and subsequently EPA regulation TSCA Title VI for formaldehyde emissions.
  • Engineered wood components for upholstered seating products also meet SFI standards and comply with California Air Resource Board ATCM Phase II and EPA TSCA Title VI regulations.
  • Seating foam is CFC-free and includes rapidly renewable bio-based materials.
  • Fabrics and other components for upholstered seating do not contain added fire retardant (FR) materials and meet California Assembly Bill 2998.
  • Fabrics and other components for upholstered seating do not contain added “forever chemicals” (per- or polyfluoroalkyl substances aka, PFAS) materials and meet California Assembly Bill 1817.
  • Dust collection systems are in place to collect residual wood released during processing of raw wood materials into finished components for final assembly. The collected sawdust is reused for generating fuel, reducing waste as well as conserving another valuable resource, petroleum.
  • Proper finishing equipment is installed and maintained to appropriately collect any negative-impact materials. These are turned over to environmental professionals that specialize in safe and effective handling of such materials, further protecting our world.
  • HPFi actively markets fabrics that are both 100% recycled (or bio-based) as well as completely recyclable (or compostable). These fabrics are manufactured from post-consumer polyester (waste material left over once a consumer has used a product, such as a soda bottle) and post-industrial polyester (waste generated by an industrial process before the polyester is used by a consumer). In Life Cycle Assessments, some recycled fabrics showed significantly lower environmental impact than fabrics made with virgin polyester across all twelve of the categories studied.
  • All corrugated cardboard material and containers used in the packaging and transport of our furniture products are made with a minimum of 41% recycled material (post-consumer and/or post-industrial) and meets standard performance requirements.
 

All of our associates are involved in environmentally-friendly practices:

  • We utilize a 4-day work week, thereby reducing fuel consumption in both operations and commuting
  • Our sales brochures are printed on FSC-certified paper
  • Multiple collection bins are throughout our facilities for recycling and diversion of all production materials from landfills
  • Office paper, bottles, cans, etc. are collected in our offices for recycling
 

At HPFi, we understand the future does not belong to us, nor does the earth, nor its resources. The maintenance of our environment and a commitment to sustainability is an ongoing responsibility that we share with every person, organization and industry enjoying the abundance of this earth. We pledge to continually respect our resources and build community for those of us here today and for those who will follow.
