How MITY Manufactures Sustainability

- 3 min read

Sustainability is key to the MITY DNA. We think of this word not only in the sense of the raw materials we’re using and how we’re sourcing them, but also as a model for creating products that are built as durable as possible. Truly sustainable products are those that not only minimize environmental impact, but also perform their function for an extended period.

We want to build the best furniture for our customers while also making sure we’re taking care of the resources that help us build our products and the environment we share with everyone else on the planet.

Here’s how we do it:

Sourcing Materials

MITY actively sources raw materials with sustainable attributes using:

  • High-recycled content for pre-consumer and post-consumer, and industrial
  • Sustainably harvested materials
  • Renewable sources
  • Locally produced and supplied materials

MITY designs products and manufacturing processes that reduce and eliminate scrap. In instances where scrap cannot be avoided, MITY recycles wood and plastic fall o, as well as steel and aluminum scrap to reduce waste.


MITY regularly improves and modifies manufacturing processes to increase efficiency, reduce waste, reduce pollution, and reduce energy consumption. MITY reports water and air quality results monthly and we are in full compliance with all city, state, and federal regulations.

GREENGUARD® Certification

MITY is committed to reducing emissions in indoor environments as evidenced by the number of products that meet the strict criteria for UL GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification. Nearly all of the MITY banquet, meeting, and event furniture products meet the GREENGUARD Gold standard and allow facilities to qualify for credits through LEED and other sustainable building programs

A Policy of Commitment

Sometimes it’s the little things

Since 2010, the bulk of MITY’s printed marketing materials have been on FSC certified paper.

Other times, it’s the big things

MITY has been recognized for excellence in the category of Environmental Consciousness by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality. MITY was presented with an environmental award at the Winning with Pollution Prevention and Energy Efficiency Conference for the company’s efforts to be more environmentally responsible.

Proud to deliver a durable product that’s sourced responsibly.
