Fidra Position: Sustainable Fire safety of furniture


The UK’s current approach to fire safety is ineffective and contributes to the global chemical pollution crisis. Chemical flame retardants lost from our furniture and everyday products are now ubiquitous in our environment, fuelling biodiversity loss and impacting our health.

Fidra aims to reduce our reliance on chemical flame retardants and improve chemical data transparency. By improving supply chain traceability, we can reduce chemical pollution, protect wildlife and ensure effective fire safety.

Our position clearly states our views on both the regulatory changes required and the steps required to achieve effective chemical transparency.
