Sustainable Design

At Draper, sustainability is more than a word; it’s in our DNA. Since the very beginning, we’ve designed our products and processes with sustainability in mind. We’ve been industry leaders in the introduction of “green” products in all of our product lines, and we’ve received regional awards for our dedication to and work for sustainability.

Usually, when we talk about sustainability we’re thinking more about ways to save energy and resources through various methods. MORE



One of the easiest sustainability habits is recycling. Not only does Draper have an aggressive recycling program, we will also accept end-of-life Draper products back and dismantle them for recycling. The sender, however, is responsible for all shipping costs. MORE


Draper provides several educational materials to help architects, designers, dealers, and owners understand how to use our products as part of a sustainable design. MORE
