Caring is part of our future

With roots in neighborhoods across America, we’re closely involved with our communities. We have a long history of outreach programs focused on sustaining our communities, helping charitable organizations fulfill their missions and simply being good neighbors.

Our environmental and sustainability efforts

We recognize the potential impact of our operations on the environment as well as the potential impact of environmental issues on our operations. We have established Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety programs with the goal of ensuring compliance with all applicable local, state and federal environmental and safety laws and regulations, and we monitor our performance under these programs through formal agency audits as well as internal audits. We have a formal program in place to identify opportunities in our manufacturing facilities to eliminate or minimize the use of certain hazardous materials and we seek to employ leading technologies to reduce emissions from our manufacturing operations to the extent practicable. 

We have implemented recycling and energy efficiency programs throughout our organization in an effort to reduce our consumption of resources. These efforts include manufacturing processes that repurpose wood waste into saleable products or divert it to other industries in order to reduce waste. We encourage appropriate suppliers of hardwood and other wood products to participate in a sustainable forestry program through formal training and advocacy, and we require all of our suppliers to comply with applicable environmental and safety laws and regulations.

Our future plans

In fiscal 2022 and beyond, we plan to further enhance our environmental and sustainability efforts by:

• Establishing internal working teams to improve our efforts related to sustainability and our environmental and social impact;

• Developing internal scorecards to measure progress against our goals;

• Developing a long-term vision for environmental sustainability; and

• Increasing the amount of environmental and sustainability information we share with the public and investment community.
