Decent Work and Economic Growth

Sustainable Development Goal 8

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

Economic growth should be a positive force for the whole planet.This is why we must make sure that financial progress creates decent and fulfilling jobs while not harming the environment. We must protect labour rights and once and for all put a stop to modern slavery and child labour. If we promote job creation with expanded access to banking and financial services, we can make sure that everybody gets the benefits of entrepreneurship and innovation.

Leather Working Group (LWG) Certified

We’re an official Leather Working Group (LWG) member and purchase 100% of our leathers from LWG-certified suppliers. Our leather products support responsible manufacturing via the Leather Working Group. We partnered with LWG in 2019 to reduce the environmental impact of leather production and work with our suppliers to source leather from LWG-rated tanneries. These tanneries must adhere to a strict protocol, focusing on energy and water usage, waste management, the control of chemicals and more. OUR SOURCING COMMITMENT: In addition, we ban the use of all exotic animal skins and any endangered species which appear on the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species [CITES] or the International Union for Conservation of Natures Red List of Threatened Specifies.

The Comfort Group

Supporting local

The Comfort Group proudly upholds its commitment to local. We manufacture our beds in Australia, relying on local suppliers, workers, and materials whenever possible. And this commitment to local goes beyond just beds – it extends to our entire supply chain: minimizing reliance on carbon-intensive international transportation, reducing greenhouse gases and prioritizing sustainable production methods. We produce high-quality, safe, and sleep-friendly materials in line with exacting Australian standards, and implement responsible waste recycling practices. This ensures our products not only meet the highest Australian standards but also contribute to a healthier environment for all Australians. In addition, we support the Soft Landing mattress recycling scheme, which is dedicated to providing jobs to Australians experiencing barriers to employment.
