10 million tonnes of furniture are discarded by businesses and consumers in EU countries each year, the majority of which is destined for either landfill or incineration. This report contributes towards the debate around the benefits of expanded policy options to support the transition towards circularity across the European furniture sector. Circular economy interventions have the potential to help counter these trends, with repair, refurbishment and remanufacture allowing value recovery, economic growth and job creation within the European furniture industry, while saving on resources and the environment.
