Below is the article published relating to Yonga Mobilya’s winning the right to full membership on August 17 2010:

FIRA is pleased to announce that Turkish furniture manufacturer, Yonga Mobilya, is the first non-EU based manufacturer to become a Full Member of The Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP), and the first from the Marks & Spencer supply chain.

Full membership was granted on 17 August this year, and the membership certificate was presented to Yonga’s factory manager, Gokhan Sertdemir, by Lord Hoyle of Warrington at FIRA’s recent reception at the House of Lords.

Yonga was founded in 1974 by Turkish guest workers in Germany; today the company, based in Turkey, employs 230 people and is an exclusive supplier to Marks and Spencer.

As a Marks and Spencer supplier, Yonga is fully committed to the retailer’s Plan A scheme to reduce the environmental impact of the goods and services, and ensuring that it becomes the world’s most sustainable major retailer by 2015.

FISP is an initiative developed by the furniture industry to recognise those businesses that are operating environmental and sustainable best practice, and to encourage and advise other businesses to adopt and implement sustainable practices. This focus on environmental management and corporate social responsibility issues demonstrates the considerable synergy between the FISP scheme and the goals of Marks and Spencer’s Plan A.

Phil Reynolds, Senior Manager – Technical Services at FIRA, says: “We are very pleased that the FISP scheme is becoming the benchmark for recognising those companies committed to reducing their environmental impact. Yonga had to undergo a rigorous independent audit by FIRA, which they passed with flying colours. We are also pleased to be working with Marks and Spencer’s supply base, and endorse the Plan A scheme and its goal to become the world’s most sustainable major retailer. .”
