For the eighth year in a row, Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops has upheld the distinction of being the only cabinetmaker in the state of Massachusetts certified by the Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP). This annual distinction is awarded by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, a non-profit trade association that represents both cabinet manufacturers and suppliers across North America.

ESP Certification

Launched in 2005, ESP certification is awarded to bath and kitchen cabinets manufacturers based on compliance in five key categories. This includes sustainable product and process resource management, as well as attentiveness to air quality, environmental stewardship, and community relations. Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops works diligently to achieve commendations in each and every category. They feel strongly about creating beautiful kitchen cabinets that are designed using low formaldehyde-emitting wood products sourced through sustainable forestry practices.

The ESP seal is used on a variety of certified products, and the program itself has earned the approval of the American Standards Institute as an accredited certification organization. In conjunction with certification, the program also places a strong focus on education. Annual recertification is necessary to ensure that the producers of kitchen cabinets continue their efforts and do not bypass environmental stewardship practices as a way to cut corners on manufacturing costs.

“We are in the business of creating cabinetry for families,” said a Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops spokesperson. “Because of our family focus, a keen eye toward the environment is a natural extension. We want to create bath and kitchen cabinets that can be used for years to come without bringing harm to future generations.”
