Design for Environment—it’s exactly as it sounds. We’re designing new products with the environment in mind. The process starts with simply asking questions, lots of questions. What renewable materials could we use in this project? How can we avoid creating a lot of waste?

How can we make sure the product performs well with less water?

How can we make a product that will not only stand the test of time in functionality but also in aesthetics?

“Up to 80 percent of a product’s lifetime environmental impact is locked in during these early stages of development,” said Theresa Millard, Project Manager for Sustainability & Stewardship. “Considering each life cycle phase while we’re developing products helps us provide sustainable solutions for our customers.”
