Portal Streamlines the Sourcing Process of Workspace Furniture

Humanscale is launching a portal that will simplify the discovery and evaluation of Humanscale products for workspace furniture buyers concerned with health and sustainability. The portal was developed with ecomedes, a pioneer of solutions that support sustainable building product purchasing.

With a mission to achieve a net positive impact, Humanscale has implemented standards for sustainable design and manufacturing throughout every aspect of the company. It has prioritized material transparency, investing research into the company’s supply chain, eliminating red-list chemicals and ensuring Humanscale products are made with healthy, sustainable materials. In fact, 84 percent of all Humanscale products have either Declare furniture labels or Health Product Declarations, two documentation programs that share the chemical makeup of any given product — much like an ingredient label for food. In line with its mission to share its certifications more widely with clients and consumers, Humanscale’s partnership with ecomedes will make this information accessible and helps promote sustainable design choices.

Designed for use by building owners, designers, distributors and AEC professionals seeking furniture that meets sustainability requirements cost-effectively, this portal leverages a sustainable product search engine that includes over 10,000 different building product brands and 700,000 unique building products. The Humanscale portal will be customized to meet the specific needs of Humanscale’s customer audiences and internal teams.

“We have always been strong advocates of a comfortable, healthy and sustainable office environment – whether in the office or working at home,” says Leena Jain, chief marketing officer of Humanscale. “We are excited to provide better transparency to our clients and to connect more efficiently with customers that have questions regarding the sustainable profile of our products. As many of our sales and marketing teams are now selling digitally from home, this online portal will also shorten the time to deliver updated product sheets and RFP responses.” 

“Humanscale is the pioneer of ergonomic and sustainable design. At ecomedes, our mission is to make their brand commitment, like those of other sustainable building product manufacturers, easily identifiable by buyers who care – all the while helping to dispel the myth that sustainable products are unjustifiably more expensive,” says Kathleen Egan, CEO of ecomedes.
