View All Sessions

About this session:

The office furniture industry is an ever-changing marketplace and this changeability has produced huge amounts of unwanted furniture. Remanufacturing addresses the waste, cost, and storage that comes with replacing office furniture. This course looks at trends in the office furniture industry, the environmental impacts created by legacy furniture, and a review of the environmental and economic benefits of remanufactured furniture as an alternative to scrapping, downcycling, or discarding to landfill.

1. Explain past and current trends in office furniture.
2. State the effect that legacy office furniture can have upon the environment.
3. Discuss what remanufactured furniture is and how to differentiate it from “as is” and refurbished furniture.
4. Recall the environmental and economic savings of remanufactured furniture.
