The sustainability criteria and methodology were established based on guidance from project leaders and subject matter experts from the USDA Forest Service, NatureServe, Esri, the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and the American Forest Foundation. Forests in Focus also received feedback from local, state and federal governments; ENGOs and conservation organizations operating at international, national, state and local levels; forestry and landowner associations; trade organizations; brands and retailers; converters; family landowners and forestry professionals. Additionally, recommendations from our General Advisory Committee (GAC) were used to inform criteria selection.
