HOUSTON, April 30, 2024 — 48forty Solutions is now certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Chain-of-Custody Standard, making it the first company producing recycled pallets to achieve this certification. 48forty Solutions is one of the largest pallet management services companies in North America and this certification underscores the company’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability.

48forty Solutions' recycled pallets are now SFI-certified

SFI certification ensures that all recycled pallets provided by 48forty Solutions are manufactured from recycled materials. SFI’s Chain-of-Custody Standard tracks certified forest content, non-certified forest content, and recycled forest content to the end product. 

“We are proud to lead the way as the first recycled pallet company in North America offering SFI-certified pallets,” said Mike Hachtman, CEO at 48forty Solutions. “This certification sets us apart in the industry and provides our customers peace of mind knowing that they are choosing pallets that are produced from recycled materials.”

SFI is a non-profit organization dedicated to sustainability through forest-focused collaboration. As the issuer of internationally recognized standards and rules for forest management and wood sourcing, SFI certification signifies a commitment to environmental stewardship and ethical practices.

“At 48forty Solutions, we believe in delivering innovative solutions that not only meet our customers' needs but also contribute to a more sustainable future,” added Hachtman. “With our SFI-certified recycled pallets, customers can trust that they are making an environmentally responsible choice without compromising on cost, quality, or reliability.”
