The SFI 2010-2014 Standard is a research and science-based standard that takes careful consideration of social, economic and environmental issues related to forest management as well as the interests in the marketplace. Through the SFI program’s continual improvement process, new requirements are often built into the standard that reflect new information and science as it becomes available. The SFI 2010-2014 Standard includes new language to address the issues of climate change and bioenergy feedstock harvesting.
