With the growing awareness of today’s environmental issues, both businesses and consumers are adjusting their decision making in order to support environmentally responsible practices. At Tukaiz, our efforts continually help to sustain the well being of our environment. In addition, we strive to support our clients’ environmental efforts and needs.
Tukaiz has taken the initiative to become certified in the Chain of Custody for FSC and SFI. The following information will help to explain the significance of FSC and SFI certifications, the benefits and our role in the Chain of Custody.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
FSC - Forest Stewardship Council is a non-profit organization devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC sets high standards that ensure forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable way.
Landowners and companies that sell timber or forest products seek certification as a way to verify to consumers that they have practiced forestry consistent with FSC standards.
Trusted environmental organizations including Greenpeace, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, and World Wildlife Fund all support and encourage FSC certification. Consumers wishing to support healthy forests and communities should look and ask for the FSC label when purchasing wood or paper products.
FSC-US, based in Washington, DC, is the U.S. “chapter” of FSC International, based in Bonn Germany.

Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program is based on the premise that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can co-exist.
SFI program participants practice sustainable forestry on all the lands they manage. They also influence millions of additional acres through the training of loggers and foresters in best management practices and landowner outreach programs.
The multi-stakeholder Board of Directors of SFI, Inc. is the sole governing body over the SFI Standard and all aspects of the program, including chain of custody certification and labeling, marketing and promotion.
