Sustainable Forestry Initiative Certified!

Mar 04, 2010

As a part of Amway citizenship and leading sustainability strategies, each week I hear new stories, ideas and initiatives.  And for some reason, after all this time, I am still amazed by what transpires.

For example, within our Paper Products Division, the Corrugated Printing Department recently became certified for fiber sourcing on the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).  As a part of a shared focus on corporate responsibility, the department set a goal to become certified, and upon a successful audit, they did just that!

So what does this mean? Amway headquarters can formally state that 100% of its corrugated material is sourced from well-managed forests sustained under the SFI program.  The Sustainable Forestry Initiative is a collective effort of individuals, organizations and companies committed to sustainable forestry, and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) recently became the world's largest single forest certification standard.  The amount of land certified to the SFI program has grown to over 178 million acres in North America!

By joining SFI, Amway has become part of a growing number of companies, forest managers, conservation groups and communities all working towards improving forest management on a global scale…creating a better world, for this and future generations.
