Why Sappi North America is Committed to Sourcing Wood and Fiber Responsibly
Responsible manufacturing begins with responsible sourcing. In the US, a strong legal framework has instilled responsible forestry practices for generations. The Clean Water Act first established the requirement for best management practices (BMPs) in the 1970s. BMP’s are adopted at the state level and are evaluated and revised over time by each state. Third-party forest certification standards have led to additional improvements and provide a scalable assurance mechanism for stakeholders.

- Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), pefc.org
- Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), sfiprogram.org
