SFI Inc. is a fully independent, charitable organization dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management.
This organization works with conservation groups, local communities, resource professionals, landowners, and countless other organizations and individuals who share in this passion for responsible forest management.
Their Board of Directors represents environmental, social and economic interest equally to address local needs through a unique grassroots network of SFI Implantation Committees.
This forest certification standard is based on principals that promotes sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk, and forest with exceptional conservation value.
The standard is used widely across North America, and has strong acceptance in the global marketplace so they can deliver a steady supply of third-party certified wood from well-managed forest. This is especially important because of the growing demand from green building and responsible paper purchasing at a time when only 10 percent of the world’s forest are certified.
