GLRPPR Sector Resource: Herman Miller, the BHAG, and Internalizing Sustainability

Herman Miller, the BHAG, and Internalizing Sustainability

Furniture company Herman Miller has long set the standard for green practices. In this interview, Paul Murray, Director of Environmental Health and Safety for the company, explains how the company's first sustainability report is raising the bar even higher. Murray spoke on behalf of Entrepreneurs for Sustainability in Cleveland, OH regarding Herman Miller's Perfect Vision 2020 Initiative. The organization has set a BHAG -- pronounced "bee-hag," this is shorthand for "Big Hairy Audacious Goal" -- to convert to 100 percent renewable energy at all facilities by the year 2020.
