It is critical that you specify certified wood in your projects. Along with the contemporary principles to “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” this is one of the most influential things you can do to modify the way wood products are sold around our planet.
Certification systems have been developed by the Forest Stewardship Council as a practical, market-based answer to a mounting environmental disaster. Independent certification focuses on creating end user demand for sustainably harvested timber.
Architects are in a excellent position to put into practice the vision that balances ecological and market interests. As an architect who specifies FSC® (FSC-C118724) wood and leads by example, you are able to initiate huge changes to save the world’s forests.
Why should we take action?
Universally we have begun to realise we can no longer afford to disregard the issues of certification and sustainability. In recent times the industry has grown exponentially as and manufacturers and end users have become increasingly obligated to FSC® (FSC-C118724) certified timbers. Certification in not only environmentally responsive, it’s also become an important strategic business consideration.
