TEMPERANCE, Mich., July 7, 2014 – MTS Seating has received Sustainability Leader status with the MindClick Global Hospitality Sustainability Index. The Index, which was developed to give hoteliers, designers and purchasers a tool to help them make educated buying/specifying decisions as it relates to manufacturer sustainability, has been endorsed by hospitality industry leaders, including Marriott International and Benjamin West.
“As part of our SynerGreen® philosophy to remain focused on continuous sustainability improvements, it made perfect sense to be evaluated by an organization like MindClick,” said Bart Kulish, president of MTS. “When making purchasing decisions, we want our customers to have peace of mind in knowing that MTS is sensitive to the impact that our manufacturing has on the environment. Our status as a Sustainability Leader is validation that we are doing our part in caring for the planet.”
MTS was evaluated in areas such as corporate social responsibility, environmental operation measurements (including facility greenhouse gas emissions and energy, water and waste practices), as well as product lifecycle sustainability applications from raw material sourcing through end of life. This vigorous process earned MTS top honors from MindClick as it relates to sustainability efforts as a company.
JoAnna Abrams, CEO of MindClick said, “We applaud MTS’s contribution to helping furnish hotels in ways that are better for the guest, the community and the environment. MTS seating is produced in socially and environmentally responsible ways so designers can feel confident in the choices they are making.”
Focusing on sustainability is not something new to MTS. In 2008, MTS became the first metal-framed hospitality seating manufacturer to earn Greenguard status on their entire line of seating products. “This is the seventh consecutive year that we have earned this certification”, Kulish said. “Having endorsements from UL, Greenguard and MindClick solidifies our status as a major sustainability leader in the hospitality market. These accolades speak to the passion for the environment shared by our customers, employees, and our suppliers.”
