Environmental Policy and Certifications

We believe in doing business in a way that respects our clients, our people and our environment. Martin Brattrud has made it a priority to create a healthy, productive work environment for our employees. We are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our activities and we design and manufacture furniture of a quality that serves our clients’ needs and vision.

In brief, our environmental policy is to comply with the letter and intent of all environmental laws and regulations. Specifically, we:

  • Channel all waste solvents and solids resulting from our production processes through established recovery companies
  • Use water-based adhesives and wood stain finishes
  • Recycle scrap polyurethane foam
  • Maintain VOC levels significantly below SCAQMD standard
  • Avoid sourcing or using wood species from rainforests
