Environmentally Responsible

Reducing Our Footprint While Growing

Our dedication to quality allows our company to reduce its environmental footprint, even while we grow, by using characteristic innovation and state of the art management practices to find efficiencies wherever possible.

Ergotron Doing Its Part

Sustainable Packaging

Company-wide, we’re making a focused effort to transition many packaging components to sustainable materials. This includes replacing non-recyclable elements with alternative solutions like paper-pulp packaging that are easily recyclable or compostable. We’re also minimizing the amount of packaging materials we use overall and consolidating products into fewer boxes to reduce waste. It’s about supporting an environmentally friendly workstyle that you can stand behind.

Elimination of Toxic Substances

Products comply with all international environmental regulations related to design, manufacture and packaging
Result: RoHS compliance ensures removal of lead, cadmium and other toxic substances from the production stream

Aggressive Reclamation & Recycling

All scrap products are disassembled and facility trash is sorted for the most efficient recycling possible
Result: Over 90% of potential waste avoids landfills, with materials instead being recycled, reused or composted

Continuous Efficiency Improvements

Demonstrated commitment to best-practice procedures in environmental management
Result: Quality control systems and procedures are ISO 14001:2015 certified at our China facility and compliant at our U.S. and Netherlands facilities

Let Us Help With Your Green Initiatives

Reduce Future Purchases

It is our policy to create professional-grade products that are safe and durable. Our height-adjustable products undergo performance tests exceeding the industry’s most rigid testing expectations, and unlike competitive offerings, you can expect our LX Arm to perform with the same ease and dependability in its 10,000th motion adjustment as in its first.

Our adaptable products will continue to be useful when new personnel use a workstation, computer hardware is upgraded, or a workspace is reconfigured. Products with a long useful life are more environmentally sustainable and deliver a strong ROI. If necessary, Ergotron products can be repaired, and parts are available to facilitate maintenance and servicing. Contact our Customer Care team for more information, or explore our Service packages for support that covers the entire product lifecycle.

Build Sustainably

The key to creating efficient work areas is maximized space utilization while improving user interaction with equipment. In terms of Sustainable Building, our products are compliant with certification criteria. Our highly adaptable and space-saving products can help gain LEED-CI, -NC and -EB credits as defined by the U.S. Green Building Council, or earn Green Star points as defined by the Green Building Council Australia through the implementation of a comprehensive ergonomics program.
