CONSERVATION

There is a growing awareness that if we want to grapple with climate change, species loss, and water quality, taking good care of our forests is fundamental. Unique among certification standards, SFI mandates innovative and impactful conservation research that builds knowledge and improves forest outcomes. We provide a value-added solution for consumers who want to know that the companies they buy forest products from are contributing to conservation results that improve the health of the planet.

Our efforts contribute to the SFI standards by quantifying conservation benefits across the SFI footprint. This work also supports our commitment to providing solutions to sustainability challenges and informing global conservation efforts.
