Finch Paper (Glens Falls, NY) has received the Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI Inc.).

"Generations of Finch Paper's foresters have personally cared for over 180,000 acres of Adirondack forestland," says Roger Dziengeleski, executive vice president and COO. "We fully support the efforts of SFI to not only provide comprehensive third-party certification, but also extensive outreach and training for loggers, foresters and family landowners."

With over 150 million acres certified across North America, the SFI forestry certification program is one of the largest in the world, with a standard based on principles and measures that promote responsible environmental behavior and sound forest management including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk, and forests of exceptional conservation value. Chain-of-custody certification means a company has a tracking system in place that identifies the amount of certified, uncertified, and recycled content in the forest products it buys, uses or sells.

Finch Paper's SFI certification audit was conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
