The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) has been recognized by the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) for its ability to allow the construction industry to responsibly source forest products.

BREEAM is an environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. Worldwide, there are more than a quarter of a million buildings with certified BREEAM assessment ratings and more than a million registered for assessment.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by BREEAM. The responsible sourcing of materials is an increasingly important element of sustainable construction,” says Kathy Abusow, SFI Inc. president and CEO. “It includes resource stewardship, corporate responsibility and sustainable procurement issues throughout the supply chain from landowners to brand owners.”
