Encourage environmentally responsible forest management.
When using new wood-based products and materials, use a minimum of 50% that are certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s Principles and Criteria. Division 12 (Furniture) material value is included in the determination of the certified wood content.
Furniture is defined as either retail display/shelving that is purchased as a unit from a manufacturer (regardless of where the assembly takes place) or as modular/freestanding furniture.
Please note that casework and built-in millwork items must be included in the base building calculations.
