Open SFC Membership Meeting & Wood Furniture Scorecard Discussion

October 13 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Join our discussion of THE WOOD FURNITURE SCORECARD, a groundbreaking program SFC developed with NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION to assess the wood sourcing policies of the largest furniture retailers in North America. BARBARA BRAMBLE, VP, International Conservation and Corporate Strategies, National Wildlife Federation, JAMESON DION, Director of Global Sourcing, City Furniture, MICHELLE VAINBERG, Divisional Merchandise Manager, ABC Carpet & Home and CHRIS NEILL, VP of Sourcing, Quality Assurance and Merchant Operations, Crate and Barrel will join SFC Executive Director SUSAN INGLIS in elaborating why developing robust wood sourcing policies matter: how they are used for improving consumer engagement as well as for supply chain management. Your being part of the conversation is crucial to advancing our work to sustain a healthy future!
The Wood Furniture Scorecard is an initiative of National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC.) Its goal is to encourage furniture retailers, the industry’s greatest influencers, to implement robust policies that drive responsible wood sourcing practices through their complex supply chains. We assessed 57 companies, focusing on the largest furniture retailers in North America.
