We carry products from Manufactureres who have acheived KCMA Environmental Stewardship Certification

Most of our manufacturers have earned their certification in the groundbreaking Environmental Stewardship Program administered by the KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer's Association). This program was recently developed in 2006 and grants annual certification to those manufacturers who meet a stringent set of environmental criteria. The criteria are designed to promote the sustainability of natural resources, reduce waste, and to reward those companies who are going above and beyond in their efforts to reduce environmental impacts. The criteria is divided into the following five categories, all of which our manufacturers, have demonstrated their compliance.

 

Air Quality: Manufacturers must demonstrate their use of low formaldehyde containing raw materials. They must also demonstrate compliance with all local and federal hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) regulations.
Product Resource Management: Manufacturers must demonstrate their use of recycled and sustainable products.
Process Resource Management: Manufacturers must have active recycling and energy conservation programs in place.
Environmental Stewardship: Manufacturers must have a written environmental policy, as well as environmental management systems in place.
Community Relations: Manufacturer must demonstrate their involvement with the community through service or charitable organizations.

The KCMA ESP program provides kitchen cabinet manufacturers with a viable method to measure their environmental management practices against an industry standard. Cabinet Encounters is proud to support a program that authenticates their high level of commitment to the environment and sustainability of natural resources.
