Environmental stewardship is a primary component of Innovant’s core philosophy. We were founded with a mission to minimize our impact on the environment and to ensure our products are environmentally sustainable.
All of our standard products already conform to a variety of eco-requirements listed below and many items can be further configured to maximize LEED points.
Steel (industry standard 25% post consumer recycled), aluminum (100% recyclable) and millwork components (Innovant standard MDF has a post consumer recycled content of 60 – 80%) are the primary building blocks of our desks. While calculations are made on a project-by-project basis, Innovant’s products typically have a recycled content of well over 20%. Our furniture is often specified to offset the lacking recycled content of other materials on a project.
Based in New York City, Innovant can help project teams within a 500 mile radius achieve this credit (including the Northeast corridor up to Toronto, east to Pittsburgh and south past Washington DC). For projects outside of this radius, Innovant has collaborated with local manufacturers to increase percentage of materials manufactured and sourced regionally.
Rapidly Renewable Materials
Materials such as bamboo veneer or wheatboard can be specified on millwork components and textiles such as 100% wool fabrics can be specified for tackable panels and upholstered cushions.
Innovant continues to offer FSC certified substrates on all millwork components and wood veneers based on availability. With recent changes to LEED, Innovant is undertaking certification in FSC Chain of Custody (CoC). The Forest Stewardship Council is an internationally recognized certified wood program that promotes responsible forest management and accountable supply chains. This voluntary third party certification provides Innovant customers continued access to this credit.
Low Emitting Materials, Systems Furniture & Seating
SCS Indoor Advantage Certification for our FORm product line. Based on BIFMA X7.1-2006 and CA Section 1350, Indoor Advantage is one of two USGBC recognized third party certifications that demonstrate adherence to stringent standards for Formaldehyde and TVOC emissions of furniture products.
Controllability of Systems, Lighting
Innovant offers a complimentary line of task lights that mount to our desks and offer user ability to adjust the lighting of their work space.
By design, open plan and benching workstations use fewer materials and are inherently more sustainable than traditional cubicles. Still, we are always exploring new ways to reduce the impact our products have on the environment. One recent innovation is Innovant’s GreenLock™ sustainable finish program, a formaldehyde free varnish alternative for our clients with heavily woodcased projects.
Most standard wood finishing products offer a lustrous finish and great durability but are full of high levels of formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (suspected and known carcinogens). Many existing water-based finishes offer lower emissions in the workplace but do not stand up to daily use of beverages or cleaning products on the work surface. For that reason, Innovant embarked on creating our own finish.
After working with various chemical engineers and months of rigorous testing, we’re proud to announce GreenLock™ as an exclusive sustainable alternative. This formaldehyde-free finish is as durable and lustrous as standard varnishes, but with a measurable decrease in TVOC emissions. When used with select materials, our FORm product line with GreenLock™ finish is certified to Indoor Advantage Gold by Scientific Certification Systems. Products carrying this certification will contribute to LEED Low Emitting Materials Credit EQ 4.5 and help maintain better air quality in the workplace.
-Formaldehyde free and as durable and lustrous as a typical, formaldehyde-based conversion varnish.
-Meets the open plan environment total volatile organic compound (TVOC) threshold limits as set by the USGBC LEED Credit EQ 4.5.
-Products carrying the Indoor Advantage Gold by Scientific Certification Systems are in compliance with ANSI/BIFMA M7.1/X7.1 – 2011 Furniture Emissions Standards, ANSI/BIFMA e3-2010 (Credits 7.6.1 and 7.6.2) and CA 01350.
