French outdoor furniture brand Fermob has earned the Gold Exemplary Recognition by the Sustainable Furnishings Council, in recognition of its environmental commitment and sustainable best practices. The company received the distinction after proving its compliance with SFC’s Exemplary Manufacturer Requirements, submitting audited evidence of its work to the organization.
Bernard Reybier, CEO of Fermob, says, “The Sustainable Furnishings Council knows the importance of safeguarding the environment, both inside our homes and out. Fermob has taken sustainability seriously for over 20 years, when we invested in a zero-waste painting facility. We are honored that our efforts have been recognized at the Gold level by the SFC.”
SFC Standards Committee Chairman Gat Caperton says of the process, “Fermob’s commitment to continuous improvement is testament to the high regard in which it holds the environment and its customers. The awarding of Gold Exemplary status proved easy for us following their years of hard work. The company approaches manufacturing with same elegance it demonstrates in its products. The SFC is proud to recognize their ongoing efforts with Gold Exemplary status.”
“We are proud of Fermob’s achievement of this recognition,” says Susan Inglis, SFC’s executive director. “This Gold Exemplary recognition shows consumers as well as professional specifiers the depth of the company’s commitment to the good of their customers, associates, vendors, community and the environment we all share.”
