Welcome to our latest SnippETS newsletter.
We start by giving the sustainability sector a well-earned pat on the back, by finally being able to consider sustainability, is well sustainable. This claim is supported by the ISO recently releasing a Sustainable Procurement Guide.
We also examine the steady growth and penetration of renewable electricity generation around the world, and how increasing subsidies to the fossil fuel sector to keep the lights on will need to be on the agenda.

Also featuring in this issue of Snippets, is the changing attitudes to the three “R’s" of Reduce, Recycle and the born-again Reuse. The days of the milkman and their glass bottles are back.
We end by examining a Swedish trial by IKEA to offer Furniture as a Service, or as it has been dubbed, the ‘Netflix of Furniture’.
