Our Strategic Partnerships

We have partnered with Carbon Efficiency Software Ltd to offer dc members access to the 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. 

Richard Collins FICRS, CEO; “Collaboration with DC, a like-minded and passionate organisation, is the cornerstone of driving positive change. Together, we can inspire and empower manufacturers to embrace their Net Zero commitments. Our collective effort is about engaging all stakeholders to build a legacy of positivity for future generations, all while securing a sustainable and prosperous future for businesses.”

Sustainable, circular design can help generate significant financial and environmental improves for manufacturers but there are many other impacts that need to be addressed to by companies to manage Environmental, Social and Governance. We’re partnered with CSR-A because we align with their core values of Inspiration, Encouragement, Respect and Trust, and believe they will help empower our customers.

OpenESG is a Generative AI company making it easier than ever to work with Enterprise ESG data across the entire supply chain.

Tee Ganbold, Co-Founder and CEO at OpenESG, said “We are delighted to partner with Design Conformity, an organisation that shares our values of transparency, accountability, and environmental sustainability. Design Conformity is leading the way in helping companies measure, reduce, and report their carbon impact, aligning perfectly with OpenESG’s mission to make ESG data not just accessible, but truly actionable. Together, we aim to empower manufacturers of all sizes to understand and improve their sustainability performance. We applaud Design Conformity’s commitment to circular design and are excited to collaborate on driving positive change.”

Ours values at Design Conformity align with OpenESG whose goal is for more companies to present accurate and transparent ESG scores enabling manufacturers/key stakeholders along the supply chain to make more sustainable choices.

Our impact reverberates through partnerships with an array of companies seeking to integrate sustainability into their supply chains.
