The Coalition for Responsible Fire Protection is a nonprofit organization committed to the promotion of responsible and sustainable fire protection, through advocacy, education and environmentally sustainable solutions. Our goal is to advance the fire protection industry through five strategies:
- Good Governance
- Accurate Reporting
- Management of Emissions
- Life Cycle Management
- Public Awareness
The Coalition for Responsible Fire Protection responds to the preference for certified green products and services in today's business environment by developing green standards for the fire industry.
A few good examples of this preference include:
- In 2010, Business Round Table TM - a group of 126 major corporations which generate $6 trillion in annual revenue - made a commitment to sustainable business practices.
- LEED® certifies over $20 billion worth of green construction each year
- The United States Government has a written policy giving preference to green contractors and green products on all contracts.
We welcome participation from all stakeholders--members of the fire protection industry, building and construction experts, and the sustainability community at large.
