Comparative Analysis of the Forest Stewardship Council and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

At the request of The Home Depot Company, the US Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) of the American Forest & Paper Association, Meridian staff convened and facilitated a panel of experts to produce a comparative analysis of the FSC’s and SFI’s forest certification programs.

The panel consisted of ten carefully selected people with forestry expertise who examined the two programs as they existed in June 2001. The programs were analyzed across several subject areas, including origins, objectives, governance, standards, public involvement, accreditation, funding, and the use of program logos and product labels. The comparative analyses and the executive summary are  available for download in the documents section.
