Forest Management and fiber sourcing - Standard SFI


Standard SFI 

Businesses can raise their profile and increase their business opportunities internationally by implementing sustainable forest practices. This process should be based on a reliable, proven framework such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) standard. The SFI standard applies to public and private land in Canada and the United States. It includes a set of requirements divided into objectives for land management and fibre supply, thereby making it possible to implement sustainable forest practices that can be measured using performance indicators that can show significant environmental, social and economic impacts.
