This metric looks at whether a company has stated that all of its products and components are BFR-free, or whether certain products (but not all) are BFR-free, whether they have plans or commitments to phasing out BFRs but has yet to achieve this for any products, or whether the company does not have a policy or goal to eliminate BFRs from its products.


Methodology

Where companies have an official position on BFRs this is often quite easy to find. A google search like "CompanyX BFR" or "CompanyX Brominated Flame Retardant" will usually find this kind of document if it exists.

 

Searching within a company's CSR report for terms like "BFRs" and "Brominated Flame Retardant" is another way to find out what the company's position is.


We have opted for the following range of values for this metric:

All Products

Some Productsthe company has published a list or statement about certain products which are BFR-free, please try to include such a list as a source

Commitmentthe company has made a commitment to phasing out BFRs but has yet to achieve this for any products, in this case please try to make a comment on the metric value which describes the nature of their commitment (e.g. "BFR free by 2020")

Nothe company does not have a policy or goal to eliminate BFRs from its products.
