Kimball Office and National inherited their dedication to the environment from their parent company Kimball International.
Their company culture is committed to the conservation and protection of our natural surroundings. Kimball International has
been an advocate for forestry management since 1963. Their passion is further carried out within each of their companies with
the "Trees for Tomorrow" program. This program provides its employees and our ever-growing communities with over
360,000 seedlings for planting. Today, over half a million plants have grown under their care.
Their EnvironmentalTaskTeam spends countless hours researching processes to improve the performance and longevity
of all Kimball Office and National furniture. As a result, their products can be reconfigured with minimal waste; their product
lines and finish options can be integrated with one another allowing customers to grow rather than dispose of existing furniture.
Both Kimball Office and National use low-emission adhesives, paints, and wood finishes. They have adopted waterbased
adhesives where possible and use powder coat paints. A majority of their product lines are certified under Scientific
Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage and Indoor Advantage Gold programs. Products certified under Indoor
Advantage meet BIFMAFES and LEED standards. Indoor Advantage Gold products meet BIFMAFES, LEED, and CA01350
Collectively they seek to improve upon the products they manufacture and the betterment of their own facilities. Three of
their ten showrooms are LEED Certified and their manufacturing facilities are registered to the ISO 14001 standard. In
addition, they have partnered up with the U.S. EPASmartWay program This transportation partnership denotes a reduction
in transportation-related emissions and a more fuel efficient way to travel.
All Kimball International companies view their legacy as more than just producing quality furniture. They are infinitely
focused on working towards a more sustainable world one day at a time.
