From eco-friendly product materials to climate-fighting supply chain partnerships, our commitment to green stewardship is unwavering.

traceability matters

Why is supply chain traceability important to sustainability?

Supply chain traceability–the process of identifying and tracking a product or materials from raw material to finished good–is a vital tool to gain and convey information about the components of Firebolt products, parts, and materials, as well as their transformation throughout the value chain.

Firebolt is committed to strengthening our traceability programs to improve our supply chain management and environmental impacts. Our valued customers, marketplace partners, and industry stakeholders are demanding more information about where Firebolt products come from, the conditions in which they were made, and how they can be disposed of safely and properly. We have answered that call by launching Trace Firebolt.

FIREBOLT PLEDGES

We’re committed to these three important goals to drive our aims of a better world together:

lighthouse

1

Carbon Neutral by 2030

We are committed to acting against climate change and achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. Carbon neutrality means achieving net zero carbon emissions by sequestering or offsetting the equivalent amount of carbon or greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as we release. Since early 2016 we have been reducing our energy consumption (demand) and cleaning up our energy supply with renewable generation sources.

2

Reduce hazardous materials in our products to zero by 2025

Firebolt is dedicated to minimization including source reduction and environmentally sound recycling and is aiming to eliminate all hazardous materials associated with our operations by 2025. Reducing the generation of hazardous wastes at the source and recycling wastes will benefit Firebolt and our communities by reducing disposal costs and the environmental, health, and safety liability associated with hazardous waste management.

3

Utilize only FSC® materials in our product solutions

The world’s most reputable environmental organizations uniquely recognize the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as the most trusted forest management certification and Firebolt is committed to using only FSC woods in the construction of our product solutions. The FSC standard is designed to be climate-smart. It requires that more and older trees be left standing, which tends to increase carbon sequestration. By using this environmentally friendly wood, Firebolt is helping raise the standard for environmental practices across the world.

Trace Firebolt Partnerships

Partners ISO
The international standard for environmental management.

Environmental management systems (EMS) play a vital role in businesses looking to measure, manage and control their environmental impact. ISO 14001 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization. It is a systematic framework used by businesses to manage the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of an organization’s products, services, and processes. By completing ISO 14001 certification, Firebolt assures stakeholders that our environmental management system meets international industry-specific environmental standards.

Partners ecovadis
The world’s most trusted business sustainability rating.

The platinum medal is the highest distinction awarded by EcoVadis. This recognition places Firebolt in the top one-percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis. EcoVadis is a global leader in third-party evaluations of business sustainability performance, using four categories when making their assessment: Sustainable Procurement, Ethics, Labor & Human Rights, and Environment. EcoVadis helps Firebolt drive sustainability with a common platform, universal scorecard, benchmarks and performance improvement tools.

Partners One Tree Planted
The planet’s leading non-profit organization focused on reforestation.

One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and knowledgeable experts to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Reforestation helps to rebuild forests after fires and floods, provide jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity. Many projects have overlapping objectives, creating a combination of benefits that contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. With each customer order, Firebolt plants 50 trees in US National Forests. The trees planted through this partnership have positive impacts on nature, biodiversity, and people for years to come.
