For the next installment of our key performance indicators, we take a look at fiber.

One hundred percent of our fiber is procured in accordance with the SFI® Fiber Sourcing standard as well as the FSC® Controlled Wood standard. These third-party certification programs provide assurance that wood-based products have been procured from well-managed forests and are legally harvested. While Sappi does not own any forestland in North America, we do provide active forest management services for landowners within our mills’ procurement zones. We continue to support and recognize the efforts of multiple third-party certification programs, including the Forest Stewardship Council®, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC TM) and the American Tree Farm System, a PEFC-endorsed certification program. The Point of Harvest certified fiber refers to wood fiber harvested from lands not otherwise certified by one of the forest management standards but is harvested by logging professionals who are trained and certified in practices designed to conserve forestland. Our recycled fiber is derived from post-consumer sources and is also FSC® certified. All recycled fiber (RF) is purchased from producers within North America and is processed chlorine free (PCF). All kraft pulp is elemental chlorine free (ECF).
