This strategic partnership diverts products from landfills at a 98.6% diversion rate and donates products to non-profits, schools, and charitable organizations. 


Kimball International’s ecoChecker tool is a digital database that can be used to find, compare, and evaluate a wide range of environmental and social criteria. This product portal, powered by ecomedes, provides verified, 3rd party certification and scientific data points that can fuel ESG disclosures, LEED credits, and a growing number of enterprise declarations. The recycled content, certifications, and more are available for each product series. ecoChecker can help with calculations and documentation, making it easy to evaluate how Kimball International furniture can contribute to sustainability efforts.
