CHICAGO - Nucraft Furniture Co.'s Flow XT Conference Table is the first office furniture product in North America to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), independently certified by SCS Global Services (SCS).
The announcement of the EPD, a transparent disclosure of environmental performance based on life cycle assessment (LCA), was made during NeoCon 2013 in Chicago.
"Nucraft has a longstanding commitment to sustainability, as evidenced by our selection of furniture construction materials and our many certifications," Nucraft President Bob Bockheim, said in a statement. "We are pleased to be able to provide even greater environmental transparency to our customers through this new Environmental Product Declaration."
Nucraft's Flow XT Conference Table EPD offers results in five categories: Global Warming Potential over 100 years, Photochemical Oxidation Creation Potential, Acidification Potential, Stratospheric Ozone Formation Potential and Eutrophication Potential.
"Through the publication of its Environmental Product Declaration, Nucraft has taken one more step to establish its position as an environmental leader in its industry," Stowe-Hartridge Beam, managing director of the SCS Environmental Certification Services division, said in a statement. SCS, an established third-party certification body, is an EPD Program Operator.
Founded in 1944, Nucraft Furniture Co. is based in Comstock Park, Michigan.
