Event Details


As part of our policy efforts, the Institute has partnered with Greenwash Action to develop a suite of advocacy trainings for our global network. Together we invite you to take part in a series of webinars that lay the foundation for your local policy efforts by exploring three hot topics in the advocacy world: 

July 21st, 9-10am PST: Certified Wood & Green Building – Certified wood and forest certification have long been lightning rods in the green building advocacy arena. In this webinar, we will examine the big picture of forestry and timber production and provide an overview of forest certification, examining the history of and the key differences between the main competitors in forest certification, FSC and SFI. We will explore how each of these certifications is considered within various certification programs, including the Living Building Challenge, LEED and Green Globes. This webinar will also discuss the potential impact of burgeoning interest in cross-laminated timber production with a particular emphasis on the Cascadia bioregion.

Learning Objectives

  1. Outline the history of political debate that surrounds sustainable forestry and emerging trends of timber specification within the green building industry.
  2. Explain how various green building certifications are driving sustainable timber practices with a particular focus on LEED® and the Living Building Challenge.
  3. Identify techniques that practitioners can use to incorporate sustainably sourced timber into Living Building Challenge and other sustainable building projects.
