STATUS & TIMELINE
Green Standards is a specialized environmental firm of project managers that works with corporations and government organizations to responsibly redistribute surplus office furniture, equipment and supplies.
Our goal is to make it simple for organizations to recover value, benefit community organizations, and divert waste from office decommissions, storage and other corporate real-estate projects.
To date, Green Standards has diverted 80,000+ tons of workplace furniture and equipment from landfill (a 98.6% diversion rate) and generated over $32M of in-kind donations to 5,500+ non-profits and communities across North America.
Now working with 26 of the Fortune100 companies, Green Standards has managed workplace decommission efforts on several of the largest corporate real estate portfolio modernizations/refreshes in history – often to the order of millions of sq ft and tens of thousands of employees’ worth of furniture and equipment.
