Green Building

In addition to requirements designed to ensure safety and structural performance, there are a growing number of codes, standards and rating systems that seek to incorporate green building concepts to minimize a building's environmental impact.

Wood can help to meet requirements — including certified wood, recycled/reused/salvaged materials, local sourcing of materials, waste minimization, indoor air quality, advanced building techniques and skills, and life cycle impacts.
