Humanscale Earns B Corp Certification, Reinforcing Longstanding Leadership in Sustainability

Humanscale, the leading designer and manufacturer of innovative high-performance ergonomic products that offer wellness and comfort wherever work happens, today announces it is certified as a B Corporation™ (B Corp™), recognizing the company’s commitment to planet positive manufacturing.

“At Humanscale, we believe that it’s our responsibility to ensure that both people and the planet are better off because we’re here,” said Bob King, Founder and CEO of Humanscale. “We have led the industry in embracing systemic change for multiple decades, from implementing transparency labels on our products and eliminating many of the commonly used Red-List chemicals, to launching the world’s first task chair made from reclaimed fishing nets. By putting in the hard work and making tough decisions, we hope to lead the rest of our industry to be more responsible.”

Humanscale pursues independent, third-party validated certifications to break through misleading claims about sustainability and create transparency, which is essential to achieve real progress. B Corp Certification means that a company has met B Lab’s rigorous standards for social and environmental impact, made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance, and is demonstrating accountability and transparency by disclosing this record of performance in a public B Corp profile. Humanscale’s additional notable third-party certifications include the Living Product Challenge (LPC), Declare, Health Product Declarations (HPDs), LEVEL®, and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). All Humanscale factories are TRUE® Zero Waste certified and are third-party audited to ensure each one diverts at least 90% of waste away from landfill, the environment, and incineration.

“Humanscale is proud and honored to receive this certification from B Lab and join the esteemed global B Corp community who are taking on the hard work required to be a force for good,” said Jane Abernethy, Chief Sustainability Officer of Humanscale. “It is our hope that Humanscale’s certification will encourage other companies to follow suit in making a real, positive difference for the future of our planet.”

Guided by the core philosophy that good design achieves more with less, Humanscale is committed to the health of both consumers and the planet. Humanscale has been recognized as the first manufacturer to receive an International Living Future Institute’s Living Product Challenge (LPC)–considered the most advanced sustainability standard for products—as climate, water, and energy positive with 29 certified climate positive products, accounting for 75% of their product sales.
