The SFI Certified Sourcing label tells buyers and consumers that fiber comes from a company that is certified to the SFI 2022 Fiber Sourcing Standard, or comes from recycled content, or from a certified forest. All fiber must be from non-controversial sources. Certified sourcing is defined in SFI Definitions (Section 14, SFI 2022 Standards and Rules).
The SFI requirements define two types of producers — primary and secondary.
The SFI Certified Sourcing label does not make claims about certified forest content. Rather, it tells the consumer that the fiber in the product was purchased from responsibly managed forestlands.
