Sustainable Forestry Initiative® ( SFI ® ) Certification 

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative standard is a globally recognized North American sustainable forest management standard.  It is overseen by SFI Inc., an independent charitable organization whose Board of Directors represent a balance of environmental, social and economic interests.

KPMG provides a range of services to companies seeking SFI third party certification, including:

  • Pre-audit assessments, which are often used as a starting point by organizations that are considering certification to identify gaps between existing management systems and the standard under consideration.
  • Training Services for company executives, management and staff to provide employees with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively implement and audit a system that conforms to the requirements of SFI or other major standards.
  • Third party certification audit services to communicate your commitment of sustainable forest management to your stakeholders. We audit your system for compliance with the standard and, through the use of scheduled surveillance audits, we continue to work with you to constantly review and improve your sustainable forest management practices.

 

KPMG also offers clients the option for an integrated audit using any combination of the major forest management and environmental standards currently available. Forest companies can also use one Integrated Management System to manage environmental, quality, and health and safety risks in both their woodlands and mills.
