Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)
SFI Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization that is solely responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving the internationally recognized Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program.
Across Canada and the United States, more than 240 million acres (100 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.
The SFI program was launched in 1994 as one of the United States forest sector’s contributions to the vision of sustainable development established by the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.
Its original principles and implementation guidelines began in 1995 and it evolved as the first SFI national standard backed by third-party audits in 1998.
SFI currently have three auditable standards: SFI Forest Management, SFI Fiber Sourcing, SFI Chain of Custody.
BM TRADA is currently accredited to audit to the SFI COC standard.
