The concepts of design and sustainability have not always been in sync in the world of business interiors and office furnishing. Environmental consciousness did not always reflect design integrity, leading to a gap between the two objectives. However, in recent years, the industry has witnessed a remarkable transformation as design quality and sustainability have become intertwined, offering numerous benefits for both businesses and the environment.
One of the key benefits of achieving both design quality and sustainability is the positive impact on the environment. Traditionally, the business interiors and office furnishing industry relied heavily on materials and manufacturing processes that had detrimental effects on the planet. Cost was always an impediment to achieving environmental credits, and builders, designers and manufacturers alike pursued sustainability in spirit while acknowledging that corporations would have to pay a premium in order to realize true environmental sustainability. However, with the growing awareness of climate change and the need for eco-friendly practices, both manufacturers and companies are stepping up to the challenge and embracing environmental practices beyond well-intentioned lip service. By utilizing environmentally friendly materials, they are able to reduce waste, conserve energy, and minimize their carbon footprint, all while producing products that meet or exceed design expectations.

EzoBord Embodies the Sustainability Process

One company that exemplifies this fusion is EzoBord, a leader in the manufacturing, design, and supply of acoustical architectural and office solutions. EzoBord has become synonymous with environmentally friendly products given their source PET material has become the standard for sustainable manufacturing. Their approach reflects the integration of eco-consciousness and sustainability with design and function.
