Nightingale Corporation

Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2020):

Here are some of the reasons why Nightingale Corporation was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2020):

  • Nightingale Corporation purposely follows a timeless tradition of focusing on the durability of its products, ensuring that all of its products have a longer lifespan than the industry average -- all chairs come with a ten-year parts warranty so they can be easily repaired, and when their useful life is complete, the company accepts returns, and dismantles components for reuse or proper recycling
  • Established in 1928, Nightingale Corporation has been developing and incorporating environmental considerations into its manufacturing processes long before mandates and municipal policies were established -- the company uses recycled materials from sustainable sources, ensures that its products are fully recyclable, and works to minimize and eliminate waste and emissions (and has achieved its ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management systems)
  • Nightingale Corporation also works closely with its suppliers to incorporate environmental considerations into its supply chain -- as a result, the company uses only organic solvent-based and biodegradable adhesives (and designs its products to minimize the use of glue during the upholstery process) and exceeds government standards with regard to harmful emissions, thus ensuring all of its chairs are Greenguard-certified as low-emitting products, uniquely ensuring that no warning labels for harmful emissions need be affixed to its products
