We've worked with hundreds of clients to calculate thousands of footprints - our experience is unrivalled
FIRA, the Furniture Industry Research Association, is a leading trade association for the furniture industry. For 60 years, FIRA has developed many of the test methods that form the basis of furniture standards worldwide.
FIRA's role is to assist the furniture industry supply chain to improve its competitiveness and profitability. FIRA realized that furniture manufacturing, distribution and retailing are carbon intensive processes and that a price on carbon would be expensive for the industry and require a long transition.
Best Foot Forward and FIRA developed a customized version of Footprinter™ geared specifically to furniture products, projects and processes. FurnitureFootprinter™ is an an easy-to-use web-based tool which allows manufacturers to calculate the carbon and ecological footprints of their products. It has an extensive database of materials and processes used in furniture manufacturing, covering the full lifecycle of products. This allows furniture companies of all types to assess the carbon footprint of their products and operations and to develop comprehensive reduction plans. FurnitureFootprinter™ can be used as a design-support tool.
