DFS joins BFM
DFS has joined the BFM to further develop its environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities.
‘Throughout 2020, we’ve put a lot of work into ensuring our business grows on the right ethical foundations. Part of that approach has included the development of an overall ESG strategy and we look forward to working with the BFM to continue our journey in this area under membership,’ says Scott Fishburn, DFS chief operating officer.
‘We are delighted to have DFS in membership. Promoting ethical business practices is core to what we do at BFM and through the British Furniture Confederation we lobby Government on issues around training, education, standards and the environment. Our work in environmental, social and governance mirrors that of DFS, which has a high commitment to sustainability and society,’ says Nick Garratt, BFM md.
‘DFS has been built on long-term investment in British craftsmanship and manufacturing and this is an exciting chapter in the business. We look forward to pooling our learning and best practice in areas including sourcing and production.’
