Greenstar is an internationally recognised sustainability rating that provides independent verification that a building or community project is sustainable. This means you can be assured you will be receiving high-quality furniture, while also reducing your carbon footprint!
Bowen Commercial Furniture is committed to sustainability and the environment, consciously making decisions resulting in good practice for the climate and the world we live in and that’s why we follow GreenStar. This reflects in our environmentally conscious approach to managing our business and our culture. We want to help your business with environmentally sustainable solutions.
We prioritize suppliers and manufacturers who are committed to sustainable practices in line with ISO14001 certification. This means that most of our furniture is designed using products and procedures that support sustainable manufacturing methods, resulting in a wide range of Eco-friendly furniture products available. Because of our vast product range, our certifications are varied, but product certifications include Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), Greenguard Gold, and AFRDI Green Tick. This results in us being able to achieve the necessary certification on Greenstar and LEED projects.
Bowen’s experienced consultants work with our clients and designers to achieve their sustainability goals and ratings. Many of our completed projects have been able to achieve 5 and 6 star Greenstar ratings (such as the University of Melbourne Werribee Campus project).
We also offer a comprehensive Product Stewardship on all products. The goal is to take back all office furniture products from our clients at the end of the product’s life cycle – part of the “cradle to grave” complete process we put our products through.
This can be your first step in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting your environmental impact thanks to the green star rating system – find out how you can become green star certified today.
As part of a proud local community member that continually gives back, Bowen Commercial Furniture is dedicated to providing local employment opportunities within Australia. We provide training opportunities as part of a commitment to growing our workforce and have committed to giving back to the world that we live in.
