In alignment with the ongoing commitment to positively impact local communities and the environment, Hooker Furnishings has announced the release of its second annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report.

Expanding on last year’s inaugural CSR report, 2022’s 46-page document touches on several new topics in the Environmental and Social categories that had not previously been explored within this context. The company also shares some of the progress made since the publication’s last issuance and outlines new CSR projects and key goals for 2022 and beyond.

The CSR Report is compiled and disseminated annually by the Hooker Furnishings CARE (Community Action & Responsibility for our Environment) Committee. Founded in 2021 with the purpose of addressing the topics of environmental stewardship, social responsibility, ethics and governance at a corporate level, CARE is a cross-functional, cross-company team that encompasses individuals from all divisions and levels of the organization, including the C-Suite. Members of the committee are tasked with identifying gaps and subsequently formulating solutions to issues under the umbrella of Hooker Furnishings’ ESG performance. By seeing these projects through to fruition, CARE strives to continuously improve upon the company’s status as a good corporate citizen, serving the environment and the local communities in which employees live and work.

“We are doing important work and making considerable progress in our efforts to improve our environmental stewardship and become a better corporate citizen,” said Anne Smith, Chief Administrative Officer, President of Domestic Upholstery, and an executive sponsor of the CARE committee. “The transparency exhibited within the report shows Hooker Furnishings’ commitment to each of the outlined causes and holds us accountable for the initiatives we champion, the projects we undertake, and the statements we make. We are excited to continue to share our year-over-year progress with our stakeholders on an annual basis as our organization evolves.”
