SUSTAINABILITY

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

At Union Office Interiors, we make it a priority to design products and implement processes that reduce our collective impact on the environment. We’re committed to the ever-growing need for sustainable initiatives. And we make a point to partner with manufacturers who are equally committed. From LEED to the new level standard, we support sustainability efforts.
