Industry Expertise

Nationally recognised for our passionate approach to sustainability

Financial Value

Our first approach is to maximise existing furniture resources by specifying new. We help clients save money by initial reuse or reconfiguration. In 2018 key projects, we saved one client £60k by desking dismantling, removal, and relocation. And another savings of £90k by keeping 205 desks in use as part of a building move program - with our loyalty and process control enabling this to happen.

Our unparalleled customer service record (with a 99.2% successful first-time installation rate in 2018) also delivers financial value.

Social Value 

Our project 'DODO' has enabled JPA to raise its profile as an office furniture sustainability specialist with solutions that measurably improve value across the chain. Reduced waste, less landfill KG & CO2, improved environmental / social and financial performance are all wins as a result of our social focus. 

Social wins for our clients include our furniture re-homing service which JPA once again control and operate in house. Our local approach provides effective community furniture re-homing which reached 3250 items in 2018, saving community organisations over £300k in furniture spend and our clients from disposal fees. 

Environmental Value

Environmentally we make it easy for our clients to eliminate furniture waste through end-of-life community re-homing and recycling scheme (DODO). This improves environmental performance as an ongoing part of the procurement process. CIients are informed where the furniture has been re-homed and if recycled receive certification of landfill and CO2e savings. 

In 2018 alone JPA diverted over 197,646kg from landfill by recycling clients redundant furniture. Simultaneously, we reduce fleet mileage by 25,000 miles through continued consolidation of our operational geography.  We reduced product damage to less than 0.05% and recycled all of our packaging.  That's some 19,107kg including plastics.

Dovetailing with UN SDG

Our challenge is to deliver financial, environmental and community values for clients, reflecting the three pillars of sustainability and supporting the United Nations 17 social development goals (SDG). 

JPA take a circular approach to furniture provision with a focus on resource maximisation whilst incorporating products and services from ethical, sustainable and robust supply chains. We also focus on value over the cost of life insuring the furniture we supply meet all relevant manufacturing, legislative and regulatory standards so our clients don't have to.

FSC®

FSC®As a workspace furniture provider, JPA supply a wide range of timber based products. But have you ever considered where that timber is sourced? Well we take this sort of thing very seriously, so alongside our existing ISO-14001 certification, JPA are also Forest Stewardship Council® certified [C118312].

FSC is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forestry, certifying forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards for responsible forest management.

JPA only use timber-based products from manufacturers using trees harvested from FSC certified sites so that you can be confident that buying our furniture won’t mean harming the world’s forests. Our certification to FSC further affirms our strong commitment to promoting and supporting sustainability across our supply chains

Please find attached three pics of Family Lives call takers comfortably ensconced in your chairs! Everyone is very grateful.
The office as a whole looks better for having matching chairs. 

We answer calls from a variety of people often in distress on 3 hour shifts so comfort is important. So thank you very much again.

Family Lives, Hatfield

We were delighted that JPA were interested in our project and quickly realised that there were ways we could work together. Our ethos is very much about maximising the potential of spaces and likewise JPA maximising the life and use of furniture. It has been fantastic to have them on board and we're delighted with the result
