FSC Vs. SFI

Materials

Where do they come from?


It is important to ensure that our building materials come from sources that are environmentally conscientious. This means from sources that use the best practices possible to conserve, reduce, and replenish what they take while taking into consideration the natural systems at play. Also, are the forest sources irreplaceable old-growths or sustainable tree farms.

Best Practices

How are materials being acquired?


Protecting the sustainability of our resources also means using non-chemical, less harsh, and more bio-dynamic methods of resource extraction. An example of this in the forestry industry would be adopting improved silvicultural tactics such as multi-level stands vs. clear cuts, or using less aggressive, more spongy wheels on their harvesting machines.
