I am thrilled to announce that SFI has reached our 2000th chain of custody location! This means the community of companies, organizations and people committed to responsible forestry is growing and the momentum shows no sign of slowing. In early 2007, we had 48 certified locations. The program jumped to 1,000 certified locations in 2009 and has now doubled that in 2010.
An increased number of certified locations means a greater range of products from responsible sources for customers– from furniture and office paper to packaging for cosmetics.
You can read more about our growth and what it means for the program, consumers and responsible forest management worldwide in the full press release, which can be found on our website here or at various other sites, including What They Think , Printing Impressions and Graphic Arts Online.
