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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
