JPA win edie award for Social Sustainability and Community Development
JPA Furniture are delighted to have won an edie award for Social Sustainability and Community Development at the recent edie Sustainability Leaders Awards.
Organised by edie, these awards recognise best-practice excellence across the spectrum of sustainable business; from the best efficiency programmes through to product innovation, from stakeholder engagement and CSR initiatives to the people making it happen.
This award recognises the significant measurable Economic, Environmental and Social impacts of our business activity.
JPA works closely with clients on the design, specification and creation of innovative, collaborative and engaging spaces for a wide range of sectors. The organisation has launched a game-changing recycling/rehoming service known as DODO, which reduces the impact of redundant furniture waste within the contract furniture sector. As well as offering financial savings, DODO improves environmental performance by saving landfill and carbon emissions which are certificated. JPA has taken DODO above and beyond by providing community rehoming of fit-for-task furniture – rehoming 3,100 items and saving more than £300,000.
