Path to Zero

Exceeding industry expectations, 3form has set distinctly aggressive goals for minimizing the impact of not only our products, but of our processes. Collectively we refer to them as our Path to Zero.

Full Circle

- We will stop sending manufacturing waste to landfill in 2009. - We will be carbon neutral by 2017. - We will continue to increase the recycled content in our products.

Design has the power to transform more than just space.

It can positively change our planet, our environment, and people's lives. Welcome to 3form Full Circle ­ a class of sustainable products, a program, a creed, and a belief put into action.

We are committed to decreasing our overall environmental footprint.

3form develops the Full Circle® Fair Trade Sourcing Collection of products in collaboration with skilled artisans in diverse regions. From Africa to Nepal, we work directly with these groups to bring authentic regional hand crafts to the architecture and design community. Through this process we encourage the development of their skills, their business and ultimately the community at large.

LEED® and 3form

3form products and solutions help you earn LEED credits in five categories. We are proud to be a member of the USGBC® and our materials are ideal for LEED certified commercial buildings. For your convenience we have provided detailed information on how 3form products and processes can help you achieve LEED certification in your next green project.

Reclaim

5 1

3form takes responsibility for its products over their entire life-cycle. Our Reclaim program reuses and recycles materials removed from installations or panels damaged in production. It is a bi-directional process that prevents panels from entering the landfill and extends their useful life. Construction and demolition waste accounts for 40% of waste in the United States. 3form is working hard to minimize its contribution by taking back its products at the end of life. This innovative program provides a valuable resource for architects, designers, contractors, and consumers who are trying to minimize their environmental footprint. Reclaim materials are available in a set of standardized sizes and subject to 3form's rigid quality control standards. This program presents a rare opportunity for consumers and designers to acquire unique panels ready for a second use.

Recycled Content

3form continues to innovate and expand its offerings of aesthetically refined low impact products. Our mission is to design beautiful materials that demand less from the natural world and are kind to people. Never satisfied, we are continually developing ways to further reduce the impact of our products and the way in which we produce them. We produce materials that:

- Contain high levels of recycled content (Varia Ecoresin® comes standard with 40% pre-consumer recycled content, see page 30. 100 Percent® contains 100% postconsumer recycled content, see page 42) - Rapidly renewable and sustainably harvested materials - GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality certified- All 3form products - Support artisans and global communities - Never contain PVC

Greenweek

Greenweek is an opportunity for 3form employees to develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues. We set new goals, and identify new ways to contribute. There is always an opportunity to physically contribute as well, usually in the form of tree planting or river clean-ups.

3form thanks Docey Lewis Designs and Aid to Artisans. These unique organizations, committed to helping artisan groups around the world, have provided invaluable connections and continue to help these relationships thrive. www.aidtoartisans.org

In the beginning, Full Circle products come from the earth. Their core is the hemp that grows tall in fields bordering Nepalese villages, the lush coconut palms that sway deep in Colombia's coastal regions. These natural creations are the seeds of potential.

2

The raw materials are crafted by passionate hands into something new. Around the world, whether high in the mountains, or down in the plains, skilled artisans weave and spin, dry and stretch. They transform the materials into crafted creations such as ribbons of Jaguri silk, and cross-hatched sheets of bamboo and hemp.

3

Full Circle spins again when 3form designers begin to collaborate with the global artisans. Through a process of research, experimentation and refinement, traditional crafts are trans-formed into large 4'x 8' and 4'x 10' patterns. When complete, the Full Circle products are ready to travel from the artisans and specialists to you.

4

Every client that purchases a Full Circle product makes a difference. The new income from each sale is introduced to the artisans' communities. This money funds educational programs that fight illiteracy, improves living conditions, and creates positive momentum. From third world to first world, and back to third world again, the Full Circle cycle is complete.

5

Meanwhile, another cycle begins ­ 3form's Reclaim program. All Full Circle products ­ which already contain 40% post-industrial reclaimed material ­ can be reclaimed and used again and again and again. Together, Reclaim and Full Circle guarantee products with a positive social impact, and a miniscule environmental footprint. The best of both worlds.

Outreach

3form works hard to create a culture of sustainability internally, with its over 300 employees, as well as externally. We do this through our everyday focus on our environmental goals, but also by continually striving to learn, contribute, and be inspired by others.
