Conservation Impact Project - SFI

Conservation Impact Project

Conservation Impact Project Overview To facilitate good decision-making, and to help make the case for the value of sustainability, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) began work in 2015 to quantify the conservation benefits of its work, and the connection between sustainable supply chains and important conservation outcomes. By clarifying these conservation attributes, SFI will help make the link between well-managed forests and the public benefits that affect each of us every day. The motivations to measure conservation values are diverse: brand owners seek to understand the impact of their sourcing; conservation stakeholders can engage more effectively if they understand the values that certification can provide; and improved tracking will better equip SFI to provide sustainability related metrics and contribute meaningfully to conservation outcomes. Formally announced at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in September of 2016, The Conservation Impact Project actually consists of numerous smaller projects, generated by partnerships within the academic, conservation and research community, and include SFI’s own Program Participants.
