Encourage environmentally responsible forest management.
Use a minimum of 50% of wood-based materials and products, certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) Principles and Criteria, for wood building components including, but not limited to, structural framing and general dimensional framing, flooring, subflooring, wood doors, finishes, and non-rented temporary construction applications such as bracing, concrete form work and pedestrian barriers.
Only include materials permanently installed in the project. Furniture may be included, providing it is included consistently in MR Credits 3–7.
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.
