Encourage environmentally responsible forest management.
Use a minimum of 50% of wood-based materials and products, which are certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) Principles and Criteria, for wood building components. These components include, but are not limited to, structural framing and general dimensional framing, flooring, sub-flooring, wood doors, and finishes.
Include materials permanently installed in the project. Furniture may be included, providing it is included consistently in MR Credits 3–7. At the projects discretion, calculation may include temporary wood materials purchased for the project. If any such materials are included, all such materials must be included in the calculation.
