Sustainability and the Fire Industry

Speak to an Expert

​Fire safety products play a crucial role in safeguarding not only buildings but also people and the essential infrastructure required for the green transition, such as wind farms. This aligns with the broader sustainability goals, particularly UNSDG 11 and 11.4, which focus on preserving cultural heritage structures.

Furthermore, fires have a significant environmental impact, primarily through the release of carbon emissions. In the UK, "accidental business fires," contribute to 2,700 TCo2e carbon emissions annually. Without the rapid response triggered by fire detectors and fire alarm systems, this carbon footprint would grow substantially.

However, we still have a responsibility to make the fire detectors and fire alarms systems more sustainable. Multiple drivers, including market demands, legislation, green buildings and sustainability certifications, are compelling fire detectors and fire alarm systems to make strides towards sustainability. Responsible sourcing, carbon reduction, circular economy adoption, and material considerations are key factors.
