MULBERRY, Fla. (Oct. 18, 2021) – Badcock Home Furniture &more has been named a Top Scoring Company on the Wood Furniture Scorecard, a joint initiative by the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) and National Wildlife Federation (NWF). This initiative encourages furniture retailers to implement policies that drive responsible wood-sourcing through company supply chains.

“Badcock developed a policy and then worked diligently and quickly to share it with all their suppliers,” said Executive Director of SFC Susan Inglis. “This is the kind of swift-focused action we all need to be taking to do our parts in addressing so many sustainability issues. I congratulate the entire team – it heartens me to see this evidence of commitment.”

“Our focus has always been on the needs of our customer – and since we both share a deep concern for the health and safety of our planet, becoming a responsible member of the SFC was a logical next step for us” says Badcock President and CEO Rob Burnette. “Our commitment to best practices means reducing our carbon footprint, promoting sustainability, and working toward a healthy future.”

More than 50% of Badcock’s wood furniture is responsibly sourced, certified sustainable and/or contains reclaimed or recycled components. Badcock also works with its suppliers on an ongoing basis to eliminate wood from unacceptable sources and progressively increase the amount of certified and recycled wood from reclaimed sources.

Responsible wood sourcing is just one of many ways Badcock is dedicated to best practices. The company is also committed to carbon reduction, consumer and environmental health, waste reduction, water management, and product circularity.
