The 2020 SFI Annual Conference will engage you in a discussion focused on how forests can make a difference when it comes to so many of the most important sustainability challenges we face in the sector and in our communities.

SFI’s vision is a world that values and benefits from sustainably managed forests. The SFI Annual Conference brings together thought leaders and influencers to learn about the opportunities that forests provide — from helping consumers identify sustainably sourced products, to conservation benefits on certified lands, to economic opportunities for local communities, to how students can become forest stewards.

Attendees from the forest sector had the opportunity to engage with each other and learn about SFI’s four pillars of interconnected activity: Standards, Conservation, Community, and Education.

The diverse range of attendees included conservation and community partners, Indigenous leaders, environmental educators, and engaged forest product customers across the U.S. and Canada.

This year’s conference discussed topics of relevance to the American, Canadian, and international forest sectors.

Mark your calendars now for the 2020 SFI Annual Conference to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
