Buy furniture sustainably and simply through CCS
Buying consciously has never been more important, and our furniture agreement can help you do just that.
Our furniture agreement offers an extensive range of solutions to all customers across the whole public sector. The agreement enables you to direct award or drive additional savings via further competition, while also allowing you to buy more consciously by addressing your social value and sustainability targets.
What can I buy?
The agreement offers a wide range of furniture including:
- Steel storage
- Bespoke furniture
- CPNI rated secure furniture
- Repair and renovation services.
In addition to the wide range of goods offered, our agreement offers a range of complimentary services including space planning, site surveys, end of life disposal and move management and reconfiguration services.
How does the agreement help me buy more consciously?
Social value is key under the new agreement and suppliers are committed to supporting in a number of areas. All suppliers are required to submit an ‘Annual Social Value Report’ which includes reporting on modern slavery, diiversity of their supply chains, fair and inclusive employment practices and environmental sustainability.
Suppliers also support the Greening Government Commitment, ensuring all packaging of products is reusable or readily recyclable. Buyers can also choose to reuse existing furniture items, rather than purchasing new furniture, by accessing repair and renovation services under Lot 7.
The agreement also provides waste management services, meaning suppliers can collect furniture and will either recycle, repair or refurbish the item for reuse. They’ll work with the customer to offer this service for little or no cost where possible.
Over 80% of the suppliers on the agreement are SMEs.
