SFI Seeks Comments on Draft 2015-2019 Standard


The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® is seeking comments on its draft SFI 2015-2019 Standard, during the Standard development process’s second 60-day comment period, to conclude March 6. The draft Standard includes new performance measures to conserve biodiversity in fiber sourcing; to limit conversion from one type of forest to another; and to expand the definition of “controversial sources” excluded in SFI-labeled products.


In addition to reviewing the draft and submitting comments at www.sfiprogram.org/comment-on-standard/, interested parties may participate in any of nine public workshops across the U.S. and Canada.
