Sustainable Forestry Initiative
Annie Perkins, Senior Director, Green Building and Supply Chain at Sustainable Forestry Initiative has spent the past two decades advancing sustainability through product transparency and supply chain assurance.

Her ongoing involvement developing international sustainability standards, via ASTM International (ASTM) and International Standards Organization (ISO), works to advance the circular economy and mitigate the effects of climate change. Additional collaborations engage environmental non-profits, academic institutions, NGO’s, industry groups and corporate brand leaders. Annie uses her experience to support civic engagements as a Councilmember within her city, and as a management board member of her local watershed.
