SFI has the scale to make a difference, with more than 350 million acres/140 million hectares of SFI-certified forestland. Wide-ranging species—like birds, bears, caribou, and many others—benefit from the freedom to fly and roam across the landscape.
SFI-certified forests are sustainably managed to provide habitat for multiple species, including species at risk. This means the SFI standards and SFI-certified companies support some of the highest levels of sustainable management for the conservation of species and habitats.
We partner with multiple conservation organizations and government agencies on species recovery and habitat conservation. SFI works to conserve all species of concern—whether or not they are formally listed as “endangered” or “at risk.” One of our key priorities is to prevent species from becoming endangered in the first place.
