2021 Wood Furniture Scorecard Released
The National Wildlife Federation and Sustainable Furnishings Council has released the 2021 Wood Furniture Scorecard, which assesses 118 furniture retailers on their wood sourcing policies.
“We’re witnessing an industrywide shift toward sustainability, which is noticeable not only through the growing number of companies voluntarily getting involved in this process, but also by the increasing scores of the companies that have been scored in previous years,” said Barbara Bramble, vice president of international wildlife conservation and corporate strategies at the National Wildlife Federation. Barbara also serves on the board of directors of FSC International.
To earn a high score, retailers were assessed against a range of criteria, including whether their wood sourcing policies are online, whether the policy includes a preference for FSC-certified or reclaimed wood, and whether the company reports that more than 25% of the wood furniture sold is FSC certified.
Top-scoring companies include:
- Cisco Home
- Williams-Sonoma, Inc.
- The Arrangement
- Working Wonders
- Badcock Home Furniture & More
- Crate & Barrel
- Hoot Judkins Furniture
- Minted Space
