Bertolini Launches Sustainability Training Program for Employees

Chino, CA—March 22, 2014

Bertolini Inc. has made a big leap forward with the launch of their Sustainability Training Program for Employees. Their first training session was held at their corporate headquarters in Chino, CA. This was a trial for launching the program company wide. The first training session was a successful overview of the Sustainability every Bertolini built-to-order chair has.

Every Bertolini built-to-order chair is built with locally sourced materials. From the 16 gauge cold rolled steel chair frame that is produced from 100% recyclable American made steel, the patent pending BLOW MOLDED FLEX-FIT™ SEAT which is produced with 30 to 50% postindustrial recycled materials, and the ergo-V back foundation made from pre-consumer/post-industrial recycled ABS polymers. Bertolini Inc. also works with one of America’s leading producers of foam cushioning using their bio-based foam products. These foam cushioning products leave a smaller environmental footprint in comparison to traditional foams made with petroleum products, are fully recyclable, are free of the controversial PBDE (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers) and are produced without the use of chlorinated fluorocarbons.

The training program includes internal in-depth resources and will be held on a quarterly basis. The employees will be trained on:

  • Initiatives on Going Green
  • Environmental Policy
  • Recycle Program
  • Product End of Life Program
  • Social Responsibility Policy and
  • Make a Sustainable Suggestion

Bertolini Inc. encourages their employees to get creative and submit their best ideas. In doing so as a company they will create a more sustainable tomorrow.

“Our company goal is to increase awareness and reduce our carbon footprints by being committed to use resources to build a healthy and educated workforce, to care for the environment for the future and to support missions across the globe”, says Jeff Sladick, Director of Sales for the Hospitality Division at Bertolini Inc.
