Australia's Furniture Waste

The Australian Furniture Association would like to bring your attention to an exciting opportunity that directly impacts our industry and the future of sustainable procurement.

As active members of the Association of Future Advocates, your voices hold immense value in shaping the trajectory of sustainability practices.

We are delighted to advise AFA Members of a very important survey initiative that aims to gather data to develop benchmark figures for a compelling business case.

This business case will be used to encourage government to adopt a comprehensive Sustainable Procurement Guide—a ground breaking step towards a greener, more responsible future for our economy.

Sustainable procurement is more than just a buzzword; it is a necessary paradigm shift in the way we approach procurement practices. By integrating sustainability principles into our procurement processes, Australian governments’ can reduce the nation’s environmental impact, promote ethical considerations, and foster social responsibility. Adopting a Sustainable Procurement Guide, government will set a powerful precedent for sustainable practices across industries, elevating collective efforts towards a more sustainable future.

This is where the industry’s active participation becomes essential. Your first hand experiences, insights, and expertise are invaluable for developing the benchmark data underpinning the business case. By completing a short survey, you will contribute to the creation of a comprehensive and persuasive argument that showcases the tangible benefits of sustainable procurement.

The survey will cover various aspects of sustainable procurement, including current practices, challenges faced, and potential opportunities. Your candid responses will help shed light on the real-world implications of sustainable procurement and provide vital information for crafting a convincing argument for its widespread adoption.

Your participation will not only benefit our industry but also empower the government to make informed decisions that align with sustainable development goals. By joining forces and speaking up together, we can inspire change, amplify our influence, and contribute to a better, more sustainable world.

Completing the survey is quick and straightforward, requiring only a few moments of your time. Click on the survey link provided below and let your voice be heard!
