Vision Statement

We are the bed industry’s conscience.

At the heart of everything we do is a simple idea – Making sure that, as an industry, we always do the right thing.

We set the standard by driving ethics, transparency and responsibility. It’s about creating a level playing field that’s fair for everyone. And we never rest, we’re always working towards that goal:

Maintaining high standards through audits and independent testing

Teaching best practice in bed-making and selling

Celebrating and promoting excellence

Providing education and guidance to help people sleep better

Creating a sustainable industry that supports the planet
