SP2 will benefit California mattress manufacturers by developing a pathway to increased efficiency, resulting in lower overall operating costs. Similar to other certification programs (such as Enhancing Furniture’s Environmental Culture and ISO 14001), SP2 establishes a management system for in-depth business analysis that will identify steps to reduce environmental impacts, establish best practices and define metrics to track progress. SP2 can also serve as a foundation for pursuing an ISO 14001 certification, the international standard for effective environmental management systems.
MRC encourages interested California mattress manufacturers to participate in this voluntary program to take advantage of the benefits it provides. Upon successful establishment of the program, participants will earn an SP2 facility certification.
