CETEM and AMUEBLA present a study on the progress of the circular economy in the furniture industry (17/10/2018)

Six organizations from Belgium, Germany, Spain and Finland are developing a training plan through the European project FURN360 to implement strategies that facilitate the transition from a linear economic model to a circular model in the habitat sector

The circular economy offers a promising avenue to create more value in the habitat sector by simultaneously addressing resource constraints, consumer value and profitability challenges.

However, the transition from a linear to a circular economy requires significant changes at the micro, meso and macro level, from innovation in the business model and the level of the value chain to the introduction of support measures.

Precisely for this reason, the Erasmus + FURN360 project, in which the Furniture Technology Center (CETEM) and the Innovative Business Association of Furniture Manufacturers and Allied Workers of the Region of Murcia (AMUEBLA) have taken part, has emerged with the aim of developing a plan European training through which to train the staff of companies to implement strategies to facilitate the transition from a linear model to a circular model in the habitat sector.

For this, the project consortium, made up of six organizations from Belgium, Germany, Spain and Finland, has prepared the report 'Circular Economy in the Furniture Sector: Challenges and Current Training Needs', which aims to provide an overview of how The circular economy is currently being implemented in the habitat sector in the European Union.

By focusing on existing practices, challenges and opportunities, project partners have identified across Europe 25 companies in the furniture sector that actively work the circular economy within their organizations.

The interviews, conducted between March and May 2018 in Belgium, Finland, Germany, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Sweden, provided information on the skills and competencies needed to develop efficient circular economy strategies in the furniture industry .

Finally, the report presents ten examples of cases of circular economy in the habitat that show companies from several EU countries that have already implemented different actions to work towards the circularity of the company through specific examples of furniture products that are sustainable , such as, for example, modular chairs and tables for children, office furniture or even dining tables created from old wooden floors.
