Forest certification resource website

The Alliance for Credible Forest Certification has launched its new website. The site is probably the best resource for the NGO position on certification, scientific and policiy studies on certification.

The Alliance consists of ForestEthics, Rainforest Action Network, Natural Resources Defense Council, Co-Op America, Dogwood Alliance, Greenpeace, Healthy Building Network, Markets Initiative, National Wildlife Federation, Seattle Audubon Society, Sierra Club, the Southern Forests Network, and many others.

The site has lots of good information on the FSC and the SFI.

The short version: the SFI is simply not credible and only the FSC ihas the support of a wide range of conservation and forest advocates.
