Q&A with Justin Miller, Director, MJF Interiors 

What are you looking to get out of the FOOTPRINT+ event?  

Understanding what best practice looks like in 2024 in reducing the carbon impact of the projects we work on. I’m particularly looking to see what progress has been made in redeploying existing furniture assets into schemes, as well as integrating second life furniture from the circular economy, as part of the overall drive towards reducing the embodied carbon impact of a project. Identifying any new advances in materials and innovative processes, such as the use of ocean bound plastic will allow us to incorporate these into our offer. 

Of course, we’re also looking forward to the opportunity to network with likeminded peers. 

Why is it important that the UK’s property, planning, and sustainability sectors come together at FOOTPRINT+?  

2023 was the hottest year on record, and here in the UK we are seeing extreme weather events occur more frequently. As an industry we need to drive widespread adoption of best practice to reduce the effect our activities have on the environment,  as well as supporting clients, partners and even our competitors along the way! 

What did you hear about / experience at our last year’s event which has made you want to come back?  

The event brought together different sectors from the CRE industry to focus on one critical challenge, the collective knowledge that was shared at this forum was unique and inspirational. 

When you attend FOOTPRINT+ in May 2024 what will you be sharing with conference delegates, policy makers, your partners, and your industry peers?  

Whilst we will be sharing insights into the embodied carbon reduction strategies that we deploy on the projects we work on, fundamentally we are looking to engage with and learn from the best of our industry and adopt anything learnt into our ESG processes.
