MOI is committed to operating consciously with the least impact on the environment. Our staff is committed to sustainability and working with manufacturers that employ the newest green trends and technologies. From project kick-off, we collaborate with our partners on their intent to pursue LEED Certification and the dedication required to specify smart sustainable furniture solutions.
MOI has worked on numerous LEED projects and takes measures to ensure we are accountable for waste reduction. Our installation crews dispose of product wrappings, cardboard, and wooden pallets through a managed recycling process for all our projects. Every year, MOI removes more than 50 tons of cardboard packaging materials and hundreds of pounds of aluminum and plastic from the waste stream. MOI can prepare waste disposal and transportation management plans with our installers and on-site project managers for many projects.
Our Manufacturing Partnerships
We strategically partner with manufacturers and installers that actively contribute to sustainable manufacturing and business practices. Our manufacturers offer products with various levels of certifications that include:
• BIFMA Level
• Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
We work with our vendors to provide LEED documentation and sustainability overviews post award for projects pursuing LEED Certification.
The US Green Building Council (USGBC) recognizes the use of level certified furniture in the LEED Green Building Rating System under Pilot Credit 80 “Environmentally Preferable Interior Finishes and Furnishings.” All level certified furniture may contribute to this Pilot Credit based on a sliding percentage scale for level 1, 2, or 3 product conformance tiers. MOI works to provide solutions that will yield the highest LEED score card ratings.
