About Fiona Edwards

Fiona Edwards is Head of Sustainability at JPA Workspaces, an independent family run commercial furnishing company.
With over 25 years in the industry, JPA have always put people at the heart of its designs.
A new leadership team in 2021 and pubic commitment to NetZero underpinned by UN SDG, have resulted in a Responsible Development Strategy and White Paper on Sustainable Workspace Development.
Fiona is passionate about people and planet and has been at the heart of this development at JPA for several years. In particular she is interested in developing standardised themes, outcomes and measures to improve clarity and quality of reporting whilst reducing duplication and expense for all stakeholders.
She is recognised for her specific furniture expertise in the UK Furniture Industry, sitting on the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme steering group, the Furniture Makers' Climate Change Panel and now a recent addition to Women in Office Design. She is also currently completing a Masters equivalent degree in NetZero Leadership at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
Fiona has steered JPA to a variety of regional and national awards for enterprise, innovation and sustainable development, also winning a National Business Women's Award for Social Enterprise in 2021. She is keen to network, share knowledge with like-minded individuals and organisations to showcase the positive social and environmental impacts and what can be achieved through a co-operative and collaborative approach.
Recent works with Sky Movies, University College London, RSK and BRE reflect personal and company commitment and the development of circularity through locality.
