SFI Forest Management Certification

SFI Forest Management Certification

Certificate Description

SFI Forest Management Standard requirements include measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forests with exceptional conservation value.

SFI is committed to continuously improve responsible forest management. SFI-certified organizations must meet or exceed applicable water quality laws and regulations, with measures to manage and protect water wetlands and riparian zones on certified lands. They must continually evaluate habitat and biodiversity impacts from forest activities – which leads to improved habitat quality, and protection of imperiled or critically imperiled species.

This certificate was created by The Sustainable Forestry Initiative, a sustainability organization operating in the U.S. and Canada that works across four pillars: standards, conservation, community, and education. SFI is the world’s largest single forest certification standard by area.
