ISPT’s Sustainable Furniture Scheme: repurposing end of life office fitouts

ISPT’s Sustainable Furniture Scheme is an initiative to repurpose office furniture saving it from landfill and then donating the proceeds to the Property Industry Foundation. 

The commercial property industry has a reputation for creating large amounts of waste by sending useful furniture to landfill when tenants leave it behind. This presented a unique opportunity for ISPT to partner with like-minded businesses and get creative about how we can salvage and repurpose this furniture 

Nicole Ward, General Manager, Commercial Services said: 

“We had the opportunity at 500 Bourke Street, Melbourne to rethink waste as a resource.  And were able to turn what would otherwise have been a huge amount of waste into an initiative cumulating in a strong community partnership.”
