Sustainable Forestry

At the request of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Board of Directors, ANAB administers an accreditation service for certification bodies operating under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Chain of Custody (SFI CoC) and/or the PEFC Chain of Custody (PEFC CoC) programs. These initiatives positively impact a range of forest-based products and their movement from the forest to the end user.
