Over the last five months, Business in the Community, as part of the Interreg ProCirc Project, has been convening a group of procurers to create a Joint Statement of Demand (JSD) for Circular Office Furniture. 

A JSD presents a shared set of commitments relating to the procurement process, along with a set of circular asks relating to the product or service that is being bought, which will be included in future tenders. By agreeing on these commitments and asks, signatory organisations can use their collective purchasing power to drive innovation and accelerate a shift to a sustainable future. By becoming a signatory to the JSD you can help to increase the impact of the project, as well as be able to use the JSD as a framework for your circular furniture procurement.

Following the launch of the Joint Statements of Demand, we invite you to join Using Purchasing Power to Unlock Circular Office Furniture on 25th April to find out more about the project and how you can get involved.
