Summary: 

Steelcase recognizes the value of enhancing sustainability in design, manufacturing, marketing and product management.  In response, Steelcase has developed a database to track both the recycled content and the recyclability of each product.  This data is used to populate a one-page sheet called a Product Environmental Profile (PEP) sheet that is used by internal product managers.  The goal of this project is to contribute to continued refinement of the database technology, and to create a PEP for every product in the entire Steelcase product line.
