The Role of Wood Products in Green Building

Architects can incorporate sustainable features into their designs through their choice of building materials. Material choice greatly affects the environmental impact of buildings, both during construction and over the building’s lifecycle. Wood is a renewable, durable building material that can be used in almost any building application. Wood products typically require less energy to produce than other building materials. Green building standards also recognize wood’s contribution to improved energy performance over time. Learn about tools and certifications for green building in this CEU.
