FSC-Certified Airport?

New building project certification standard approved
Have you ever taken off from an FSC-certified airport? Or had an appointment with your doctor at an FSC-certified clinic? This might just be on your door step. A new [Forest Stewardship Council] standard for the certification of projects makes it possible to promote the use of FSC-certified wood and products without requiring every craftsman or sub-contractor to be certified individually. The standard’s range of application is wide: from buildings, to event infrastructure, sailboats and yes, even airports. The FSC Board of Directors approved the standard last month. This new standard is a major breakthrough. Finally we will see FSC hospitals, offices and apartment buildings and who knows, maybe even arenas and airports, commented Heiko Liedeker, executive director of FSC International Center .
