A Bold Approach to Sustainable Forest Management

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program's premise is that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can co-exist.

SFI program participants practice sustainable forestry on all the lands they manage. They influence millions of additional acres through the training of loggers, foresters and family forest landowners in best management practices and landowner outreach programs.

This commitment to sustainable forestry recognizes that all forest landowners play a critical role in ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of our forests.

Program Certification

SFI, Inc. has developed a comprehensive and internationally consistent third-party certification procedure for participants to document and communicate their compliance with the SFI Standards.

To be certified, an applicant must undergo a thorough and rigorous review of its operations by an audit firm accredited by either ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) or the Standard Council of Canada. All auditors must meet precise educational and professional criteria established by SFI, Inc.

A Sustainable Future

It's a simple premise. Make sound business decisions to provide the forest products our economy needs and protect the environment and the health of our forests for future generations.

The SFI program integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and air and water quality.

Organizations that meet the rigorous standards for SFI certification have demonstrated a commitment to the principles of sustainability on the lands they manage and in the products they produce.
