Routes to Greater Sustainability

As chair of the Climate Change and Sustainability Committee at The Furniture Makers' Company, Joanna hosted the 'Routes to Greater Sustainability' conference at Furniture Makers' Hall in February.
The event was the first pan-furnishing industry conference of its type and welcomed businesses and delegates from all sectors of the domestic and contract markets, with the aim of sharing knowledge and best practice on routes to greater sustainability.
A packed room of delegates enjoyed nine short insightful presentations, which included an overview of potential new government legislation by the BFC; a focus on the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP), the UK’s only industry specific scheme; and information about how to measure your company’s carbon footprint by SATRA. The schedule also included several case studies from companies, including Carpet Recycling UK, Hypnos, JPA Workspaces, Panaz and Silentnight, on the steps they are taking to aid carbon reduction. In between the presentations there were plenty of networking sessions offering delegates the opportunity to connect and learn from each other.
