SFI’s mission is to advance sustainability through forest-focused collaborations. SFI invites all interested parties to participate in the SFI Standards Revision process. Working together is critical to ensuring the sustainability of our planet. People and organizations are seeking solutions that go beyond limiting negative impacts and make positive contributions to the long-term health of the planet. Sustainable forests, and products sourced from those forests, are a great tool in moving towards shared sustainability goals such as climate action, reduced waste, clean water, and economic development.
An important aspect of our company philosophy is the recognition that we’re not separate from our environment: we’re part of the environment. Plants, humans, non-human animals, rivers, lakes, and forests sustain each other. And we all share this, our home planet, together. As a company, we strive to do our best to demonstrate our respect for the environment and we seek out suppliers who feel the same way.
2019 has been a great year, thanks to all of you for supporting SFI and committing to a sustainable future.
