Sustainability Circle What is the Carbon Footprint of a Piece of Furniture?
Join the IIDA NY Sustainability Circle alongside mebl and the Sustainable Furnishings Council as we break down the basics of furniture’s carbon footprint and how the furniture and interior sectors – individual designers, small businesses, or large brands – can make a difference in addressing global climate change. How can we measure the carbon footprint of a sofa, chair, or table? How do materials, packaging, transport, and disposal factor in? What are terms such as net zero, cradle-to-grave, materiality, and embodied carbon?
Join Lucy Arndt, Head of Sustainability, Dodds & Shute, and Lucy Crane, Sustainability Manager, Modus, in exploring how this matters in tackling climate change – and how designers, manufacturers, retailers, and other furniture industry players can apply these ideas toward a climate-positive future. This will be a 60-minute webinar, with an optional additional 30 minutes to dive deeper into your questions with the speakers.
Produced by mebl | Transforming Furniture. Co-sponsored by the Sustainable Furnishings Council and IIDA NY Sustainability Circle and presented as part of NYCxDESIGN.
