We do have a great “green” story to tell about CFS. We have been in business for 36 years and from the start, we have made a conscious effort to recycle everything possible that we touch: cardboard, paper, metal, plastic, metal, pallets, foam and other solid waste. And, as a part of our business model – we also recycle / refurbish a large amount of office furniture on an annual basis. We have also refitted our entire warehouse with energy efficient lights. As a result of our efforts, CFS was named as one of St.Louis Park’s first “Green Business” in 2006. We continue to look for ways to decrease our company’s energy /waste footprint.
On the business side – CFS looks to its manufacturers to provide furniture that is made from sustainable sources and which is as recyclable as possible.
And, from a practical side, CFS installed the first Platinum LEED certified project in Minnesota – Great River Energy’s headquarters in Maple Grove. We also provided a significant amount of the furniture for Welsh Companies’ (Colliers) new headquarters which achieved Gold LEED certification.
At CFS, we are constantly looking for better ways to re-cycle, re-purpose and do more with less – in everything we do within our company, with our vendors and for our clients. Being “green” is just good business – for CFS and, our community.
