The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is a non-profit organization that sets certain high standards to make sure that forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible and socially beneficial manner. If a product, often a piece of wood outdoor furniture, is labeled as “FSC Certified,” it means that the wood used in the piece and the manufacturer that made it met the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council.
SFI Inc. is an independent, nonprofit organization that is solely responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving the internationally recognized Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program.
The SFI program’s unique fiber sourcing requirements promote responsible forest management on all suppliers’ lands.
