Lightning Source takes care to select paper that is high quality from sound suppliers primarily from SFI, FSC or PEFC certified mills for the books we manufacture. These programs are defined as:

Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) The FSC® Council is a non-profit organization, promoting the environmentally  appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.

Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) The Sustainable Forestry Initiative is an independent, internationally recognized non-profit organization responsible for the SFI certification standard, the world’s largest single forest certification standard.

Programme  for  the  Endorsement  of  Forest  Certification™  (PEFC™)  The  PEFC™  Council  is  an  independent,  non-profit,  non-

governmental organization which promotes sustainability-managed forests through independent third-party certification.
