Learn more about our products. Use our design guide to learn about carbon reduction, use our supplier directory to find materials and promote your products and use our Carbon Efficiency Estimator to report products.
Our Carbon Efficiency Estimator which measures the total amount of carbon a furniture piece uses in its lifecycle is the industry’s first benchmark tool for Carbon Efficiency.
It allows designers, estimators, and procurement managers to quickly estimate the total amount of carbon a retail display fixture produces in its life cycle. Additionally, users can also produce self-declaration certificates for their customers confirming the Carbon Footprint and Carbon Efficiency.
Our design certificate provides a Life Cycle Assessment of the product ‘type’ and is awarded to manufacturers that comply with the dc design standard.
dc is an independent design standard and we are working closely with designers, manufacturers, industry associations and universities to become a Carbon Accreditation Scheme.
In this course, you will learn the importance of sustainable design, dc’s recommended design process and how to apply for dc certification.
