April 22, 2022 (Toronto) – As part of its annual recognition of Earth Day, Keilhauer has released their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report. In an effort to increase transparency with customers and their community, the 2022 report shares information regarding Keilhauer’s culture, facilities, and the stories behind some of the company’s latest innovative, sustainable product launches and other community initiatives.
“At Keilhauer, we have always believed that a responsible business must prioritize sustainability,” says Mike Keilhauer, president. “We are working hard to influence sustainable design practices, and look forward to sharing our latest accomplishments and future commitments with our community.”
A highlight of the 2022 CSR report is Keilhauer’s partnership with the Indigenous Arts Collective of Canada (IACC), a not-for-profit corporation founded in 2012. Within the past year, Keilhauer made their largest-ever textile donation to IACC. These donated materials were then divided between the Native North American Travelling College and Indigenous artist Frankie Pasapa of Minwaashin Lodge, to be used in both virtual and in-person moccasin and mitten making workshops. Each workshop provided Indigenous women with valuable learning and skill development opportunities, while also offering the ability for participants to build a sense of community and share in their culture.
Also featured within Keilhauer’s 2022 CSR report is the company’s launch of the award-winning Epix collection, a line of 100% recyclable office furniture products that are constructed from pure materials such as PET felt, aluminum and polypropylene plastic.
“From creating meaningful partnerships with our local communities to further reducing emissions and energy usage, we moved closer to our goal of Closed Loop Manufacturing than ever before,” says Meghan Sherwin, chief marketing officer. “We wanted to use this report not only to share our accomplishments from the past year, but to also provide a transparent overview of where we are headed – and why it matters. I hope that our journey empowers and encourages others to join us in advancing sustainability.”
