Environmental Responsibility

Southwest Contract and Panel Specialists, Inc. are committed to reducing its impact on the environment. We will continually strive to improve our environmental performance and to initiate additional projects and activities that will further reduce our impacts on the environment.


Our commitment to the environment extends to our customers, our staff, and the community in which we operate. We are committed to:


Supporting a business conduct centered on the health and well-being of our employees, our company, our community and our planet.


Understanding that we have an environmental responsibility that extends beyond our lives and the lives of generations to come.


Selecting vendors who are like-minded; ones who incorporate earth-friendly initiatives and make attempts at every juncture possible to reduce unnecessary wastes in the supply stream.


Training our people to become even more conscious within their roles of responsibility. We must empower them to develop creative solutions regarding recycling, smart energy consumption, waste reduction and more.


Acting in a responsible manner by complying with all government rules and regulations, and setting an example for others to follow.


Importing from suppliers who are in earth-friendly countries where possible. We are proud to be an American manufacture of quality furniture and we admit that in these days, it is almost impossible to build any product that is made from 100% U.S. based components. We will select environmentally responsible partners in the U.S. as well as abroad.


Never ceasing our efforts to seek out and eliminate environmental threats within our business processes.
