Demand for FSC-certified building materials increases every day. With the recent launch of LEED v4 by U.S. Green Building Council members, the FSC marketplace has a renewed sense of certainty and momentum. Though wood products are rewarded by LEED in many ways, FSC remains the only recognized forest products certification standard. Other FSC market drivers, such as high volume use by major retailers, residential green building programs throughout the country, and the Living Building Challenge make sourcing and using FSC-certified materials easier all the time. The journey from specification to sourcing of building products can be long and complex. Through this course, you will learn why FSC products are important, how they integrate with broader green building standards, and how to find the products you’re looking for.
