The future of furniture: Circular Solutions for a post Covid world- 22.09.2020

Circular procurement in the corporate furniture sector, particularly through remanufacturing opportunities, provides an opportunity to #BuildBackBetter from the coronavirus situation.

This transnational event will explore why circular economy approaches are beneficial for the environment and society, as well as the financial benefits for the organisations that buy furniture in this way, and how procurers and suppliers can adapt to meet the challenges which this presents.

The event is delivered as part of Interreg North Sea Region circular procurement project, ProCirc, with partners and speakers from Scotland, UK, Norway, Sweden, Belgium and Netherlands.

The online session will consist of short presentations covering:

*Innovative circular solutions in the furniture sector:
- Ann Beavis, Crown Workspace (UK)

- Jamie Harbour, Rype Furniture (UK)
- Preben Carlsen, GoGood (Norway)
