Forestry Certifications

 

What is a Forestry Certification?

Forest certification is a system of forest inspection and a way of tracking timber and paper through a "chain of custody" (COC). This process follows the raw material through to the finished product. The COC assures the consumer that the products have come from forests which are well managed. This means that the foresters take into account environmental, social and economic principles and criteria.

 


Sustainable Forestry Initiative

SFI, founded in 1994, is an independent organization whose participants practice sustainable forestry on all the lands that they manage. They also influence millions of additional acres through the training of loggers and foresters in best management practices and landowner outreach programs.

 

SFI’s goals include extending the program’s reach, broadening sustainable forest practices through procurement systems, prompt reforestation to ensure long term productivity and continual improvement in standards and practices.
