The Australian Furniture Association is the peak Australian industry association for the furniture sector supply chain. The AFA supports third-party certification and product stewardship, ensuring that all furniture and furnishing products have an appropriate chain-of-custody or material passport claim through its supply chain.
Australia’s furnishing industry leaders are being called on to fast-track efforts to ‘design-out’ hazardous chemicals found in everyday household and commercial furniture items.
The AFA has launched an unprecedented campaign to support jobs in the Australian furniture industry, in a bid by the industry to stave off up to 10,000 jobs at risk due to COVID 19. A recent, ongoing survey revealed the devastating impact of COVID 19 on the sector.
