News: UK - Helping government buy remanufactured furniture
As part of our major collaborative project on furniture, CRR has been working with Defra to develop purchasing specifications.
Wednesday, 2nd December 2009
At a meeting in Defra's Nobel House, we presented these findings to an invited audience of furniture manufacturers, remanufacturers and government purchasers.
Our recommendations are to include 5% remanufactured office furniture into every purchase central government makes. These recommendations have been included into a draft specification and will shortly be available for public comment. Please contact CRR's Ben Walsh for more details.
You may be interested in further information on standards available in Publications and in our standards section.
