In keeping 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, the 46-page 2022 document addresses several new topics in environmental and social categories not previously explored in this context. The company also shares some of the progress made since the publication was last published and outlines new CSR projects and key goals for 2022 and beyond.

The CSR report is compiled and distributed each year by the Hooker Furnishings CARE (Community Action & Responsibility for our Environment) committee. Founded in 2021 with the goal of addressing the topics of environmental stewardship, social responsibility, ethics and corporate-level governance, CARE is a cross-functional, cross-company team that encompasses people of all divisions and all levels of the organization, including the C-Suite. Committee members are responsible for identifying gaps and then formulating solutions to issues under the umbrella of Hooker Furnishings’ ESG performance. By completing these projects, CARE strives to continually improve 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 significant progress in our efforts to improve our environmental stewardship and becoming a better corporate citizen,” said Anne Smith, Chief Administrative Officer, President of Domestic Upholstery and Executive Sponsor of CARE Committee. “The transparency on display in the report shows Hooker Furnishings’ commitment to each of the causes described 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.
