Ashley Global Retail has released its fourth annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report under its “Beyond Home Promise” initiative. This initiative underscores the company’s commitment to various social and environmental causes, including honoring military and first responders, advancing medical research, protecting the planet, and uplifting communities.

The 2023 CSR report details Ashley’s efforts across these pillars, showcasing the company’s year-round commitment to enriching lives and fostering sustainable practices. Notable achievements from the report include:

Honoring Military and First Responders Ashley donated 2,533 Tempur-Pedic® mattresses to America’s Special Operations Forces’ Warriors through Operation Shut Eye, in collaboration with Tempur-Sealy International and Darkhorse Benefits, to improve the sleep quality of these dedicated professionals.

Advancing Medical Research The company supports HeartWorks and the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, which focuses on treating congenital heart defects. In 2023, Ashley employees raised over $68,000 at the annual HeartWorks fundraiser. Additionally, Ashley’s ongoing support for the Wanek Family Project for Type 1 Diabetes at City of Hope has contributed to 36 discoveries and 8 clinical trials.

Planet Protection In its ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, Ashley recycled significant amounts of materials in 2023, including 78,695 tons of wood and 12,163 tons of cardboard. The company plans to introduce further sustainability measures in 2024.

Uplifting Communities Ashley’s community support included donating $229,000 worth of furniture to various non-profits and housing programs, and 14,426 beds to Hope to Dream, ensuring children in need receive essential sleeping accommodations.

“Our commitment to the pillars highlighted in Ashley’s Corporate Social Responsibility report isn’t just a box to check, but a fundamental part of who we are as a company,” stated Todd Wanek, President and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries. “While we’re proud of our dedication in 2023, we’re excited to do even more in 2024 and beyond.”

The company plans to continue expanding its “Beyond Home Promise” in 2024, focusing on raising funds and awareness for new causes, and will spotlight different organizations each month in 2025 to promote various initiatives, including American Heart Month and Earth Day.
