STANDARDS

People and companies are looking for better solutions to ease pressures on the planet — practical choices that will conserve nature, combat climate change, and cut waste and pollution. Choosing certified sustainable forest products is a great way to protect species, combat climate change, reduce plastic pollution, and protect water supplies.

SFI standards have become the fastest growing, highly trusted solution that can support a growing need for products from the forest, as the drive to reduce carbon pollution and waste intensifies. We are working to shape markets today and ensure that sustainably managed forests will continue to play a crucial role in keeping the planet healthy.
