Sustainable Forestry Initiative

SFI Inc. is an independent, nonprofit organization that is solely responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving the internationally recognized Sustainable Forestry Initiative┬« (SFI┬«) program. 

Across Canada and the United States,  285 million acres (115 million hectares) are certified to the SFI forest management standard, the largest single forest standard in the world.

The SFI program's unique fiber sourcing requirements promote responsible forest management on all suppliers' lands. SFI chain-of-custody (COC) certification tracks the percentage of fiber from certified forests, certified sourcing and post-consumer recycled content. SFI on-product labels identify both certified sourcing and COC claims to help consumers make responsible purchasing decisions. SFI Inc. is governed by a three-chamber board of directors representing environmental, social and economic sectors equally. 

Inconsistent Practices are activities conducted by SFI participants that are not consistent with SFI Standards. The Mississippi SFI State Implementation Committee (MS-SIC) has developed a confidential process to receive, respond to, and follow up on any complaints. To report an inconsistent practice, contact the MS-SIC at 662-325-7948.

For more information on the MS-SIC , please contact SFI Coordinator John Auel at or 662-325-7948.
