News: Furniture business models
Case studies to highlight environmental benefit
Friday, 16th March 2012
The team at the CRR (through our parent company Oakdene Hollins) are working on a WRAP-sponsored project identifying alternative business models for furniture procurement. Rather than buying new furniture, companies are offering remanufacturing services, whole-life management, reuse and rental options. The aim of the research is to show the business benefit as well as the environmental benefit from using these alternative services. We are producing a series of case studies that highlight the benefit which should be available before the summer. If you are interested in this work, please contact us at email@example.com.
