SitSmart bangs the Eco drum for Comittee on Climate Change Chairs

THE Committee on Climate Change (the CCC), based in London, is an independent, statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008 whose purpose is to advise the UK Government and devolved administrations on emissions targets and report to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for climate change.

The CCC has recently chosen the Viasit Drumback swivel chair in black from SitSmart as a cost-effective solution for its stylish offices. The environmentally-friendly Drumback is neither upholstered nor pure mesh but combines the advantages of both basic forms. The design idea was to stretch the cover fabric - similar to a drumhead - over a back component made from polypropylene uniquely combining the benefits of the cool comfort of a mesh back and the stability of a closed back without the need for upholstery in a fresh and contemporary look.

In fulfilling its role, the CCC’s main focus is to: provide independent advice on setting and meeting carbon budgets and preparing for climate change; monitoring progress in reducing emissions and achieving carbon budgets and targets; conducting independent analysis into climate change science, economics and policy and engaging with a wide range of organisations and individuals to share evidence and analysis.
