Awarded annually, the Wood Furniture Scorecard is an initiative of National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC). Its goal is to encourage furniture retailers, large and small, to implement robust policies that drive responsible wood sourcing practices through their complex supply chains.
Forests are crucial, and we must protect them. They provide vital habitats for thousands of species, livelihood for people, and cleaner air for all life on the planet we share. After the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation is the second leading cause of climate change.
Globally, furniture manufacturers are the third largest wood consumers, behind construction and the paper industry. Furniture companies, therefore, have an enormous responsibility to harvest and use wood sustainably. That is why we at Vermont Woods Studios are dedicated to sustainability, and committed to working with organizations such as the NWF and SFC to create sustainable supply chains and products that ultimately benefit the environment, and you, our customers.
As consumers, you wield tremendous influence over retailers. Receiving a high score on the 2021 Wood Furniture Scorecard WFSC is important to us because it is important to you, and we hope that it inspires you to shop with us for all your sustainable furniture needs! Learn more on our blog.
