Introduction to Sustainable Forestry Initiative and Green Building
Event Description

Architects and builders choose wood because it is a superior building material. Wood is a beautiful, renewable resource that is easy to work with. It also offers numerous environmental benefits. Using wood in green building projects supports many of the benefits offered by responsibly managed working forests, including clean air and water, biodiversity, habitat for wildlife, and employment for local communities. Now, a new LEED Alternative Compliance Path (ACP) for forest products will strengthen the positive impact of responsibly managed working forests in the construction sector. Learn how SFI Certification offers a new pathway for green building professionals.
