The journey to net zero  

It’s virtually impossible not to read or hear about climate change and the ‘call to action’ to decarbonise. Best intentions to implement change can, however, be stifled by confusion and a myriad of jargon. A person, product, company or country is carbon neutral if they balance the carbon dioxide they release into the atmosphere with the amount they absorb or remove. Carbon dioxide represents the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions but other gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide and hydrofluorocarbons, are also contributors.

DODO involves the collection of unwanted furniture for reuse or recycling, and so saving it from extinction, hence the name DODO. This means the volume of unwanted furniture sent to landfill is reduces, working towards zero waste. A unique feature of JPA furniture is that they consider whether new furniture is really needed; they often help businesses make the most of the furniture they already have, perhaps by reuse or rehoming. In this way they are helping to reduce the waste sent to landfill as well as emissions associated with producing new furniture.
