BIFMA at ORGATEC
Discover visionary concepts at ORGATEC. The impact of the pandemic and the digital transformation have further accelerated the unshackling of work from fixed places and times. Tomorrow’s office can be anywhere … even in our heads. The future belongs to flexible knowledge workers who work creatively and independently – and it belongs to a work culture that is based more so than ever before on cooperation, motivation, and trust in the spirit of partnership.
BIFMA’s Steve Kooy, Director of Health and Sustainability, will present an overview of North American regulatory and sustainability trends impacting the furniture industry. The presentation will also include a joint update by BIFMA and FEMB regarding their work to harmonize aspects of the e3/LEVEL sustainability standards in Europe and North America. Steve is excited to present at ORGATEC and to connect with BIFMA’s European members.
“BIFMA is pleased to collaborate with ORGATEC, a leading European Trade Show for workplace, business and institutional furniture discussing the future of sustainability in the furniture industry and the vision to harmonize North American and European LEVEL programs. BIFMA recognizes not only the role furniture products serve in activating the built environment and creating the human experience, but also the advancements the industry is making in environmental, social, and sustainable product innovation.” — Deirdre Jimenez, President + CEO, BIFMA.
