Beginning on January 1, 2010 all print runs for their entire catalog of books will be printed on paper that has earned the SFI Certification. Prominent conservation groups such as The Conservation Fund, American Bird Conservancy, and Conservation International support the SFI program.

Forests can be instrumental in achieving emissions reduction targets, providing a quarter of needed climate solutions through 2020, according to the analysis by Resources for the Future, a Washington-based research institution, and consulting group Climate Advisers.
Daniel Miley, CEO of Rainbow Publishers, discussed the significance of the SFI logo in each new book they print: “Our team has worked diligently with our supply partners to find responsible paper sourcing and with SFI to earn this certification. While we are proud to display the SFI logo in our new books, we are prouder of its meaning: that we take seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of God’s creation.”
Rainbow Publishers has also obtained an FSC certification for books in its Legacy Press (www.LegacyXPress.com) division.
