Ben Franklin TechVentures LEED: Certified Wood

Certified Wood

Ben Franklin TechVentures2 was designed and constructed using the Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System. This standard promotes sustainability in building design. To address LEED’s certified wood measure, TechVentures2 is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as having more than 50% of the wood used in its construction sourced from sustainably grown and harvested forests. Forest ecosystems are a vital part of the web of life on earth, and they are also commercially important because they yield valuable resources like wood, rubber, and medicinal plants.
