Biogen's 2015 Corporate Citizenship Report
The Furniture Trust is thrilled to have been mentioned within Biogen's Corporate Citizenship Report from 2015. Mentioned on Page 31 as part of Biogen's initiative of "Getting to Zero Waste", they said:
Donating Used Furniture – In 2015, Biogen began working with The Furniture Trust, a Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to making a positive, community impact with used office furnishings, while providing the most economical and environmentally responsible solutions to local businesses. The Furniture Trust connects donated office furnishings in conjunction with local schools and nonprofits. In two years, Biogen has donated nearly 50 tons of furnishings, supplies, artwork and construction materials to The Furniture Trust.
While most materials are donated to schools and other local nonprofit organizations, some materials are also used in the Eco-Carpentry Challenge hosted by The Furniture Trust. The Eco-Carpentry Challenge promotes resourcefulness and recycling and provides an opportunity for high school students to develop their creative carpentry skills while upcycling unwanted items into new products. Biogen served as a judge to recognize several of the creations utilizing donated office furnishings and materials from Biogen.
