Nordic Circular Furniture Dialogue Conference

Torsdag 2. desember 2021 kl. 09.00–15.30

Sted: Digitalt,

Påmeldingsfristen er utløpt.

About the event:

The public sector in the Nordics is establishing a joint procurement initiative for circular furniture. The goal is to accelerate the transfer to a circular furniture supply in the Nordics, through incentivizing innovative business models and strengthening buyer-supplier dialogue. This will reduce waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions, while generating new local jobs.

On December 2nd we invite you to a digital conference where public organizations present their needs and upcoming circular procurements, and suppliers will pitch their circular furniture solutions. There will also be opportunities for 1:1 meetings between buyers and suppliers. Finally, an expert panel will discuss the bigger picture “What are the most important enablers to establish the Nordics as the #1 Circular furniture region of the world?”

Best regards,

The Nordic Joint Procurement Initiative for Circular Furniture
