The Sustainable Furnishings Council has announced it will be offering a free Sustainability Essentials Webinar on Monday, January 16 at 12pm EST.
The one-hour webinar will provide a grounding in the environmental issues related to home furnishings, including the factual basis for climate change, problems with indoor air quality, toxic waste, and water conservation. Source documents are public records such as the U.N. IPCC 4th Assessment Report and the U.S. EPA, translated from technical jargon into easily understood concepts with common references all explicitly linked to the home furnishings industry.
Content also includes a synopsis of GREENleaders, the industry first certified sustainability training course. This webinar is intended to give participants useful information to begin using in their businesses immediately as well as answer any questions regarding getting the most out of SFC membership and participating in the full exam program to receive credentials as a local expert in green furnishings.
