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.
A regular, transparent process for revision of the SFI standards is a critical part of SFI’s commitment to continual improvement. By leveraging expertise across our network through focused engagement, and by including open comment periods, SFI creates standards that are grounded in science, include diverse perspectives, and benefit consumers, communities and ultimately forests across the U.S. and Canada. This commitment to collaboration strengthens the positive impact of our standards in addressing sustainability challenges.
A 60‑day public comment period will run from May 1 through June 30. This draft is based on input from the first comment period last year and reflects a review of all comments by the SFI Standards Revision Task Groups, the SFI Resources Committee, and the SFI Board of Directors.

SFI is conducting webinars focused on specific themes and requirements in the SFI standards to present the major enhancements and provide opportunity to comment.
