SFI Blog: The Future Is Now – USGBC’s Decisions Can Sustain Our Forests

Read the latest blog post on goodforforests.com.

I am not surprised that the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has extended the deadline for public comments on its draft LEED language for one more week – to March 27, 2012.

We received many thoughtful submissions when we opened up the Sustainable Forestry Initiative’s Good for Forests blog, and I suspect USGBC is receiving plenty of comments as well. For good reason. There are still more questions than answers on proposed requirements, such as the “FSC or Better” language for the certified wood credit and changes to the local sourcing.
