Canada-based interior fabrics manufacturer Victor Group Inc. has become a Silver Corporate
Exemplary Member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), a Chapel Hill, N.C.-based non-profit
organization that promotes sustainable practices among manufacturers, retailers and consumers.
Victor Group is the first textile manufacturer to join at the silver level.
To meet SFC’s standards, a company must manufacture at least 25 percent of products using
sustainable materials; implement a Social Equity Code of Conduct for employees; submit a Carbon
Footprint Report; show the improvements have had an impact on its supply chain; comply with certain
additional sustainability measures; and achieve an objective, third-party certification, which
Victor has received from Charlottesville, Va.-based McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry LLC.
