This is version 3.1 of GECA’s Furniture & Fittings (Level B).
This standard seeks to define good environmental performance benchmarks for home and office furniture and fittings throughout their entire life cycle. The scope of the standard includes chairs, desks and workstations, sofa/couches/recliners, stools, coffee tables, desks, office desks, and variations thereof including fittings.
On 15 March 2021, in collaboration with Edge Environment and the Global Product Stewardship Council, GECA was awarded a grant by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to tackle the issue of commercial office furniture going to landfill. The group will use the funding to design a product stewardship scheme that will help reduce the estimated 30,000 tonnes of furniture – much of it in perfectly good condition – that ends up in Australia’s waste stream each year.Read More See all news
