GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Steelcase Inc., a global leader in the office furniture industry, today announced that it has been recognized by two organizations for its sustainability efforts -- Michigan Green Leader awards and Michigan's 101 Best & Brightest Sustainable Companies.

"Our commitment to sustainability influences everything we do, whether it's reducing our operational footprint, working towards eliminating materials of concern, or investing in social impact initiatives," said Nancy Hickey, Chief Administrative Officer, Steelcase. "While it's complex and challenging work, it's also a source of inspiration. We are humbled and proud to be part of this reputable group of Michigan-based companies."

Presented in conjunction with the Detroit Free Press, Michigan Green Leader recognizes businesses, people and organizations that are doing outstanding work to make Michigan a greener place to live and work. The awards convened panels of independent judges to consider the nominees. Steelcase was selected in the Large Business category for the second year in a row. Steelcase, along with other winners, was recognized during a breakfast ceremony earlier today at the MGM Grand in Detroit, Mich.

The 101 Best and Brightest Sustainable Companies, presented by CORP! Magazine, celebrates Michigan-based organizations that are advancing sustainability. This awards program recognizes companies that are making their businesses more environmentally and socially responsible, the lives of their employees better and the community, locally and globally, more responsible as a whole. For this award, Steelcase was honored at an awards luncheon on April 18, 2012 at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Mich.
