NBF Sustainability Policy

Home

We are the bed industry’s conscience, and 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 within the UK bed industry, and as such we are committed to encourage and support members in moving towards a sustainable future.

We set the standard by driving ethics, transparency, and responsibility within the UK bed industry, and as such we are committed to encourage and support members in moving towards a sustainable future.

We will do this by engaging with legislators, working together across the supply chain, and developing guidelines and tools which will help in a more sustainable future for the bed industry.

We will encourage and support the bed industry to become more circular and embrace new ways of designing products and methods of production that reduce the impact of the industry on the environment.

Where suitable we will encourage members to adopt industry, national and global standards or goals, and we will look to work and collaborate with other businesses and organisations also working towards a more sustainable future. This will ensure that our industry is part of the bigger sustainability picture.

We will encourage members to consider fully the social elements of sustainability throughout their business. We want members to be expanding opportunities for all people today and tomorrow to improve the communities in which they operate.

We are committed to making the bed industry as sustainable as it can, and we continually review the support and information we provide.

Let’s Make It Right.
