DCI is committed to forging partnerships with suppliers that share our commitment to reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and developing innovative products with minimal impact on the environment and public health. We hold DCI’s suppliers to the same set of standards our customers expect from us.
When sourcing laminates, foam, fabrics, and wood core materials, we look for products that carry certifications from industry specific, third-party organizations.
We source foam used for cushioning in our upholstered products that minimize petroleum-based foam with more sustainable soy and corn based alternatives. The third-party certifications include CertiPUR-US, MAS Green or GreenGuard.
CARB Compliant Wood Core Materials
DCI sources hardwood plywood, particleboard, and medium density fiberboard products that use either no-added formaldehyde (NAF) based resins or ultra-low-emitting formaldehyde (ULEF) resins. These materials exceed requirements set fourth by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
We can also incorporate into any of our product lines sheetgoods that meet the Eco-Certified CompositeTM (ECC) Sustainability Standard. This is an industry standard developed by the Composite Panel Association (CPA) for manufacturers of composite wood or agrifiber-based panels.
