Glossary of Sustainability Terms

ISPA’s goal in creating this web page is to provide the mattress industry with a common sustainability vocabulary based on definitions from reliable sources to increase industry-wide understanding of these terms. To advance sustainability within our industry, it is important to make sure that we are speaking the same language.

ISPA’s Sustainability Glossary was created in collaboration with the ISPA Sustainability Committee. If you have suggestions or feedback please email Sustainability@sleepproducts.org
