Environmental Stewardship

Kitchen Classics is certified by the Environmental Stewardship Program. Introduced in 2006, the Environmental Stewardship Program recognizes manufacturers that demonstrate an ongoing commitment to environmental practices and sustainability. Aligned with the National Association of Home Builders’ Green Home Building Guidelines, the new program recognizes companies that employ the use of environmentally responsible materials in cabinet products. The program also rewards companies that seek to minimize the environmental impact on their local communities by recycling wastes and using low emission coatings.

To qualify for the certification, companies are rated annually on 18 different criteria in categories including air quality, product resource management, process resource management, environmental stewardship and community relations.
