SFC earns Forest Stewardship Council award

The Sustainable Furnishings Council has received the 10th annual Forest Stewardship Council Leadership Award.

Recognized for the success of its annual Wood Furniture Scorecard initiative this year, the SFC met criteria as a U.S.-based nonprofit organization focused on goals shared by the FSC, including forest conservation, the fight against climate change and wildlife protection. To put the Wood Furniture Scorecard together, the SFC works with the National Wildlife Federation to create the ranking, identifying retailers with wood sourcing policies that “actively promote and support sustainable practices,” according to a release.

For its 2020 edition of the Wood Furniture Scorecard, which was published last month, the SFC expanded the initiative to include small- and medium-size retail stores contributing to increased consumer demand for FSC-certified wood furniture.

“We’re extremely proud of this recognition from the FSC,” said SFC Executive Director Susan Inglis. “FSC wood certification plays a critical role that is good for business as well as for the environment, and I look forward to continuing to work with their organization.”

Retailers of wood furniture can learn more about why responsible wood sourcing matters and why responsible wood sourcing is good for business by visiting the SFC website.

The company said that, as with all of the guideshop experiences, the retail footprint is small and focused on providing the customer with a tangible experience of the brand to help entice online sales. Situated in the historic Logan Circle neighborhood at 1701 14th St NW, the nearly 2,000-square-foot space is located along a corridor of restaurants, retail and new developments.
