In the realm of furniture manufacturing, we recognise the vital role of furniture designers in shaping the industry’s sustainable future. Our suite of products is meticulously tailored to empower furniture manufacturers like you to create environmentally responsible designs, resulting in a Circular Design Certificate which is 3rd party validated, industry recognised and significantly cheaper than a EPDs (Environmental Product Declaration).

In the United Kingdom, the landscape of emissions reporting is undergoing a transformative shift. Large companies with over 250 employees are now obligated to report Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. Looking ahead, Scope 3 reporting is on the horizon and is expected to become mandatory for large UK companies by 2025.

Let's break down these emission scopes:

Scope 1: Encompasses direct emissions from owned sources.

Scope 2: Includes indirect emissions from acquired energy sources.

Scope 3: Represents a comprehensive category, spanning all other indirect emissions across a company’s value chain.

At Design Conformity, we’ve embraced these emission dimensions and have meticulously developed a comprehensive suite of products designed to assist furniture manufacturers like you in reporting your carbon footprints to both your clients and yourselves. Our primary focus is on Scope 1 and Scope 3 emissions, spanning a diverse range of sectors, including retail, car showrooms, banks, hospitality, offices, schools, hospitals, hotels, leisure, and museums.

We've introduced a suite of tools exclusively for our members to enhance your Carbon Efficiency and elevate your scores on the Circular Design Certificate:

Carbon Footprint Estimator: A powerful tool for manufacturers to optimize their carbon efficiency during the design process.

Directory of Suppliers: This pre-scored tool assists members in making more carbon-efficient product selections during the design phase.

AI Tool: Harnessing the capabilities of artificial intelligence, this tool provides data-driven recommendations in the design process to enhance carbon efficiency.


The culmination of your efforts results in the prestigious Circular Design Certificate, awarded to our members for their final designs.


As furniture manufacturers, you can also leverage these Circular Design Certificates in your company’s ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) reporting. At Design Conformity, we are actively forging partnerships with organisations such as CSR-a, Open ESG, and others, ensuring that our certification holds exceptional value at both the product and company levels.


Join over a hundred companies that have already experienced our unwavering commitment to reducing and reporting the carbon impact of their products. Together, we can shape a more sustainable future for the furniture manufacturing industry.
