***ALERT: Label Under Boycott***What the SFI claims: "The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) label is a sign you are buying wood and paper products from well-managed forests, backed by a rigorous, third-party certification audit."What Stop SFI Greenwash claims: "The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) label is a huge industry scam that should be avoided at all costs. The SFI puts its greenwash label on wood and paper products connected with chopping down the oldest trees we have left, cutting down patches of forest the size of 90 football fields, the aerial spraying of toxic chemicals on communities, polluting waterways, spurring landslides, and threatening rare wildlife. This greenwashed eco label is bought and paid for by the very industry that it is supposed to be regulating. SFI: pure greenwashing."Website: http://forestethics.org/sustainable-forestry-initiative

Featured Certification

The MSC Chain of Custody standard for seafood traceability ensures that the MSC label is only displayed on seafood from a MSC certified sustainable fishery. If a fishery is certified as meeting the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing, use of the MSC ecolabel on seafood products is permitted only where there has been independent verification that the product originated from a certified fishery. An independent certification against the Chain of Custody standard provides this verification. The MSC standard has 3 overarching principles that every fishery must prove that it meets: Principle 1: Sustainable fish stocks. The fishing activity must be at a level which is sustainable for the fish population. Any certified fishery must operate so that fishing can continue indefinitely and is not overexploiting the resources. Principle 2: Minimising environmental impact. Fishing operations should be managed to maintain the structure, productivity, function and diversity of the ecosystem on which the fishery depends. Principle 3: Effective management. The fishery must meet all local, national and international laws and must have a management system in place to respond to changing circumstances and maintain sustainability.
