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