The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is a sustainable forest management program operated by SFI Inc. SFI Inc. governed by an 18-member board of directors made up of three chambers with equal membership: environmental, social and economic.

The SFI standard contains principles, objectives and performance measures for the objectives that include measurable indicators to help verify compliance with the objectives.

To assess conformance with the standards, SFI certified companies hire third-party independent auditors, who verify that the companies’ forest practices and environmental management system meet the requirements of the SFI standards.
