Make sure more than just your cabinets last.
Improve your home. Help protect the environment. The KCMA Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP) lets you do both. Whenever you buy kitchen, bathroom and other cabinets with the ESP seal, you can be assured that you’re doing your part to protect the environment.
- ESP was launched in 2006
- ESP is the only environmental certification program that specifically focuses on kitchen and bath cabinets
- Certification is awarded based on compliance in five categories: air quality, product resource management, process resource management, environmental stewardship and community relations
- ESP rewards manufacturers for low formaldehyde-emitting wood products
- ESP promotes use of wood from a recognized sustainable forestry program
- ESP promotes ongoing education and outreach by awarding certification points to manufacturers that educate suppliers and promote community involvement
- ESP requires companies to annually review their practices to safeguard the environment, track their achievements and continually seek new methods and practices.
- The ESP seal is displayed on certified products
- In March 2009, ESP earned approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited certification organization, validating the ESP certification process. The audit followed ANSI approval of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Standard™, which references ESP as the benchmark in green cabinet standards.
ESP members are doing their part to manufacture and produce products in an environmentally responsible way, and there are also many ways you, individually, can have a positive impact on the environment.
