Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certification

CTI Paper USA is an SFI Chain of Custody (CoC) certificate holder.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) program is based on the premise that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can co-exist. SFI program participants practice sustainable forestry on all the lands they manage. They also influence millions of additional acres through the training of loggers and foresters in best management practices and landowner outreach programs. Being the only solely North American standard for forest certification, SFI is an increasingly important certification.
