Intro Section

The SFI program was conceived as part of the forest products industry’s strategic vision to balance society’s need for forest products with stewardship of trees, streams, wetlands, plants and animals that are part of the forested environments.

Today, SFI Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving a sustainable forestry certification program that is internationally recognized and is the largest single forest standard in the world.

The SFI Standard is based on principles and measures that promote sustainable forest management and consider all forest values. It includes unique fiber sourcing requirements to promote responsible forest management on all forest lands in North America.

SFI certification also extends to the market. When they see the SFI label on a product, consumers can be confident they are buying wood or paper from responsible sources – whether it is reams of paper, packaging or two-by-fours.

Through the SFI program, we can continue to reward investors, create jobs, and extend sound management throughout our nation’s forests for the benefit of generations to come.

 

     
SFI Standard Comments

SFI’s mission is to advance sustainability through forest-focused collaborations. As part of the collaborative process, SFI invites all interested parties to participate in the SFI Standard Revision process.  

The first draft of the new SFI Standards will be available for public comment on May 1, 2020. This will launch a 60-day public comment period that will be open through June 30th. This draft will include recommendations by the Standards Revision Task Groups, the SFI Resources Committee and the SFI Board of Directors based on comments SFI received during the first public comment period last year. You will receive a dedicated email about the launch of the public comment period on May 1st with the link to the online platform. Information will also be posted on our website.   

SFI originally planned to conduct regional workshops throughout the U.S. and Canada, but due to COVID-19 we canceled those in-person workshops. In order to present the major enhancements, as well as provide opportunity to comment on the proposed revisions and enhancements, SFI will conduct webinars focused on specific themes and requirements in the Standards. Below is the complete schedule and scope for the webinars.   

If you are unable to attend a webinar, you can still submit comments online and SFI will record all workshop webinars and make them available after the meetings.

Kentucky SIC

The Kentucky SFI Implementation Committee (KY SIC) works with local groups and agencies to provide leadership and share best practices to improve forest management on both certified and uncertified lands in the commonwealth. The KY SIC makes important contributions in assuring SFI Standard conformance and SFI program recognition.

 What does the KY SIC Do?

  •  Provides information and answers questions about local forestry operations and participates in community outreach. 
  • Promotes the use of best management practices, certified & trained logging professionals and qualified resource professionals to landowners across the state and plays a vital role in landowner outreach. 
  • Establishes protocols for addressing inconsistent practices in forest management.
  • Serves as a hub of informational resources to help increase the amount of SFI certified forest in Kentucky and recruit participants.
  • Promote and disseminate forestry research and the provision of accessible forest management statistics.

The KY SIC is funded by participant companies/organization via dues or in-kind services (link to members list). KFIA oversees and directs the SFI program in Kentucky according to published by-laws. For more information on the SFI program and how you can participate, contact Bob@kfia.org
