Herman Miller has been named a recipient of the Sustainable Leadership Award for its exemplary practices and commitment to achieving, by the year 2020, its Perfect Vision plan for a completely sustainable business. Len Pilon, Director of Workplace Strategies and Facilities, accepted the award at the CoreNet Global Summit in Philadephia on Tuesday, April 25.
The award was presented by the International Interior Design Association and the American Institute of Architects' Committees on the Environment and Interior Architecture in partnership with CoreNet Global.
Herman Miller was cited for its leadership in the category of Private Sector companies with under $5 billion in annual sales. Specifically, the company was honored for a comprehensive approach to sustainability in design, construction, and corporate culture. The company also was heralded for serving as a teacher and information source on sustainable design and practices both for those inside and outside of the industry.
Sustainable Leadership Awards also were given to Texas Instruments in the Private Sector multinational category and to HOK in the Design (architecture, interior architecture) category.
The awards, now in their third year, recognize sustainable design leadership as expressed through advocacy, mentoring, and projects that reflect consistent commitment to the principles of sustainability in professional practice.
