Sustainability and Fiber Supply

Forest and Biomass Certification Programs

Member Companies typically participate in forest certification, fiber sourcing, and/or chain of custody programs developed by organizations such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI), Forest Stewardship Council, and Sustainable Biomass Program.

NCASI Staff provides Member Companies with support for work associated with SFI (e.g., Conservation and Community Partnerships Grant Program), and FSC Controlled Wood Standard National Risk Assessment.

Staff also updates information documenting the linkage between the NCASI technical studies program and certification program research requirements.
