Forestry Certification Skirmish Continues
After ForestEthics publicly challenged the credibility of Sustainable Forest Initiative in September, the Coalition for Fair Forest Certification, with many members part of the SFI, have fired back, claiming that FSC "engages in unfair and deceptive trade practices."
A New York Times report outlines the skirmish, which is mainly focused on certification of construction materials in LEED buildings. The U.S. Green Business Council is in the process of developing benchmarks for reasonably sourced materials, benchmarks which the Coalition says are just parroting FSC standards and which many Coalition members would not pass.
"They’re attempting to put a green label on status quo practices," Corey Brinkema, President of FSC's U.S. operations, told the New York Times. "FSC will fight that. Otherwise, the value won’t be there and we will all lose."
