what is certified sourcing
What is Certified Sourcing?
  • SFI program addresses the fact that 90% of world’s forests not certified through the unique Certified Sourcing requirements
  • Objectives associated with un-certified fiber from
    • North America
    • Off-shore
  • The associated on-product labels do not make claims about certified forest content
  • Shows raw materials from legal and responsible sources, whether forests are certified or not

10%

north american reality
North American Reality

The certified sourcing label is valuable in the North American market because of the reality of ownership and supply

In the USA, 10 million family forest owners account for 60% of the private forest land

In Eastern Canada, 30% of fiber supply comes from small family forest owners

For a variety of practical reasons, less than 10% of those are certified

certified sourcing in north america
Certified Sourcing in North America

When sourcing fiber within the United States and Canada, program participants must broaden the practice of sustainable forestry by:

Landowner Outreach

Providing landowners with information on reforestation, use of best management practices, protection of wildlife habitat and biodiversity (Objective 8)

Qualified Resource and Logging Professionals

Encouraging landowners to use qualified resource professionals (Objective 9)

Best Management Practices

Promoting and monitoring use of best management practices (Objective 10)

certified sourcing off shore requirements
Certified Sourcing Off-Shore Requirements
  • When sourcing from outside North America, program participants must conduct risk assessments to avoid fiber from:
    • Biodiversity hotspots and high-biodiversity wilderness area (Objective 11)
    • Controversial sources including illegal logging (Objective 12)
    • Areas without effective social laws (Objective 13) addressing:
      • workers’ health and safety
      • fair labor practices
      • indigenous peoples’ rights
      • antidiscrimination and anti-harassment measures
      • prevailing wages
