In October 2006, a group of eco-conscious individuals and companies gathered at the High Point...
Welcome to our new online home at SFC! We're excited to have you here as we unveil this digital space dedicated to sustainable learning, knowledge-sharing, transparency, and support for the home furnishings industry. Our team has been hard at work to create an accessible and informative platform, and we're eager to show you around.
At SFC, we believe that sustainable best practices and responsible decision-making should be within everyone's reach. With this platform, we aim to inspire, educate, and empower home furnishings stakeholders to make informed, eco-conscious choices.
Education is at the core of our platform. We will continue to present sustainability experts to talk about specific topics on our SFC Presents Webinar Series and offer knowledge-sharing through our Member Working Groups. We value the power of community and collective wisdom! These offerings are what we are calling "phase one" of our new digs.
As you "look around the place" in the coming weeks, you'll see that SFC elevates our members, shining spotlights on their sustainable furnishings -- especially with their product and design images adorning our "walls." Their individual profile pages tell their story even more but in phase two of our "home remodel," SFC Members can display a more detailed sustainable profile, one that includes third-party certifications, corporate sustainability reports, public commitments, achievements, and targets/goals on their SFC profile page. Transparency is still a fundamental principle of our online platform. And we will regularly share their sustainability stories right here on this blog!
For phase three of the SFC homestead (coming in early 2024), we will "open our doors" to our new SFC Academy, where anyone - members and nonmembers -- can register for online courses and CEUs on demand! As a bonus, SFC Members will receive course discounts. Whether you're an experienced sustainable professional or just beginning, you'll find many sustainability resources here.
SFC's new digital home is more than just a website; it's a movement. We invite you to explore, learn, connect, and join us in our mission to promote sustainable living and responsible choices. Together, we can positively impact our planet for future generations. Thank you for visiting our new online space. We hope you find it informative, engaging, and inspiring. Welcome to the future of sustainable learning and knowledge-sharing tailored to meet the needs of the home furnishings industry.
