Sustainable manufacturing takes into account every aspect of operations. It begins with verifying that every single material that goes into a product is sustainable and each input is safe. It accounts for energy and water usage as well as social equity in the community. Finally, it supports cradle to cradle life cycles. Within this, it upholds the balance of a people-planet-prosperity model.
We recognize the complexities of proper sustainable manufacturing. Because of that, we offer third party certifications that audit, verify and certify that we do what we say and actually produce measurable results. Here you will find a list of our certifications.
“If you look at what’s going on at Highland Craftsmen… you are looking at a product that is almost a sacred thing… People are being honored with jobs, forests are being honored with sustainable forestry, and the buildings that use these materials are being honored with safe, healthy materials.”
