Is leasing furniture the future?
This week: Inter Ikea’s circular supply chain project leader Eleonora Tieri on how and why the furniture brand is working hard to develop circular models. She outlines what Ikea hopes to achieve from its new pilot business furniture leasing project in Sweden, and how that might be scaled to other product lines and locations.
And another chance to hear from Baroness Lola Young on how companies can move from talk to action to tackle modern slavery.
Plus: ETI calls for business model change to protect worker human rights, WWF accused of facilitating violence, Africa cocoa initiative passes commitment milestone, and climate change continues to impact food production.
