    Regional Event: San Diego

    Let’s cele­brate the start of summer with a meet up at Panama 66 (in Balboa Park next to the San Diego Museum of Art) on Wednes­day, June 5 at 4pm PDT.

    This get together is in conjunc­tion with The Society of North Amer­i­can Gold­smiths confer­ence to be held at San Diego State Univer­sity.

    Furni­ture and Impact Report­ing: Creat­ing a Roadmap for Change

    What is impact report­ing? Exam­ples of impacts’ in the furni­ture indus­try include resource and water use, carbon emis­sions, waste creation, or toxi­c­ity in mate­ri­als – and can also cover areas such as commu­nity engage­ment and labor prac­tices. Impact report­ing helps compa­nies track key data, gain visi­bil­ity into their key busi­ness and produc­tion activ­i­ties, and then shape strat­egy in response – for reduc­ing nega­tive, and improv­ing posi­tive, impacts.
