Commercial & sustainability director, JPA Furniture

It's important to JPA Furniture as a family business to set standards and leave a legacy for future generations in the way we operate and go about our business. During my time here as Sustainability Director, we have raised our profile to become sustainability experts in our industry and a leading voice for environmental change. We are sustainable in 3D - our operation, services and products.

Our area of expertise is Office Furniture and I am passionate about developing our business activities sustainably by showcasing positive environmental, social and economic impacts and adding value through our services, local operation and world class products. I welcome the opportunity to help all organisations buy local, buy better and more sustainably – whilst also eliminating redundant office furniture destined for landfill.

To date JPA have diverted over 19,400 redundant furniture items from landfill, rehomed over 3200 furniture items at zero cost, saving 65 community organisations over £290,000 in furniture spend as a consequence of our DODO redundant furniture initiative.

By incorporating redundant furniture issues into the procurement process right from the beginning, we help our clients make more of the furniture they have whilst at the same time improving their environmental and community impact – ensuring consequential financial, environmental and social value.

JPA Furniture has been recognised externally with awards both local and national including: edie Sustainability Leaders Awards, Third Sector Business Charity Awards, National SME Awards, and Business in the Community.
