The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) announced the Dr. Sharon Haines Memorial Award for Innovation and Leadership in Sustainability at the 2022 SFI/Project Learning Tree (PLT) Annual Conference on June 15, 2022. Paul Trianosky, SFI’s Chief Conservation Officer, is this year’s recipient. During his time at SFI, Trianosky laid the groundwork for SFI’s focus on the role of forest certification in advancing critical forest values relative to climate change, biodiversity, and water.
SFI and International Paper created this award to celebrate Dr. Sharon Haines. Dr. Haines was International Paper’s Director of the Office of Sustainability before her sudden passing in 2007. She had vast knowledge and incredible insight in natural resources stewardship, and she was uniquely successful in fostering strong partnerships with conservation organizations.
