Wave understands the importance of being a good steward of the earth and the environment we all live and work in. We believe it is our responsibility to help our clients achieve their sustainability objectives. We are proud to lead our industry on issues of sustainability and we do so by providing LEED training to our Designers and Project Managers. Our world headquarters is in a Gold Leed certified building. Our office is a living lab to illustrate to clients some of the industry’s best practices in light harvesting, and reduction of office waste through our comprehensive recycling program. The utilization of raised flooring with reusable, modular walls and plug and play data allows us to quickly reconfigure our office space without construction waste.

Our Strategy
For each Wave project, we strive to collect and disposed of all waste in an environmentally appropriate manner. Our installation crews are instructed to dispose of product wrappings, cardboard and wooden pallets through a managed recycling process whenever possible. We arrange for blanket wrapped chair shipments for large projects that can ship directly to the job site. This adds up. Every year Wave removes or eliminates more than 50 tons of cardboard packaging materials, and hundreds of pounds of aluminum and from the waste stream. We encourage ride sharing among employees eliminating traffic, fuel consumptions and carbon emissions.

Wave is committed to reducing our environmental impact by partnering with manufacturers that actively contribute to sustainable manufacturing and business practices.
