ABOUT SUSTAINABLE FURNISHINGS COUNCIL (SFC)
Sustainable Furnishings Council: Promoting healthy environments, inside & outside
The Sustainable Furnishings Council is a non-profit balanced coalition of industry players founded at High Point, NC in October 2006. Involving manufacturers, retailers and consumers, the SFC is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive information on environmental, safety and health issues in the industry, and championing initiatives that improve products and processes. The SFC and its qualifying members respond to environmental and social issues and offer specific information to consumers, the media, and other partners. The SFC is the authoritative source for information and resources that contribute to sustaining a healthy environment both inside and outside the home.
SFC members acknowledge the tremendous urgency for action in combating dangerous global climate change and addressing other environmental problems. Members take immediate steps to minimize carbon emissions, waste stream pollutants, un-recyclable content and primary materials from unsustainable sources. SFC members recognize Life Cycle Assessment as the best method for analyzing the environmental impact of products, and a verifiable chain of custody as the only acceptable method for tracking wood flow. SFC members lead the industry in developing awareness of best practices throughout their supply chains.
Sustainable Furnishings Council helps home furnishings companies grow by “greening up” their operations. Connecting manufacturers, retailers, and consumers, the SFC is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive information and guidance on environmental, safety and health issues in the industry, and championing initiatives that improve products and processes. Consumers use SFC resources to find products and services that meet their needs and serve their values.
