Sustainable Furnishings and the Wood Furniture Scorecard

 Registration is closed for this event
SFC at EarthX: How the Furniture Industry Can Save Forests of the World

Join a discussion of the Wood Furniture Scorecard, a groundbreaking program that Sustainable Furnishings Council developed with National Wildlife Federation to assess the wood sourcing policies of furniture retailers throughout North America.  The topic is especially important because keeping our forests healthy is key to addressing the climate crisis, and because furniture is the #3 user of the wood resource, behind construction and paper.  

We will elaborate how a wood sourcing policy helps, and what it tells you about the company you are buying from.  Panelists include top-tier scoring companies and forest ecosystem experts:  

Ben Collins, VP of Retail for Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams; Donna Sampson, General Manager for the Dallas Flagship Williams Sonoma store; Randi Struck, District Manager for Crate & Barrel; Chris McLaren, VP Marketing Forest Stewardship Council, in conversation with Susan Inglis, Executive Director of Sustainable Furnishings Council.
