LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
Fire Defending All Lumber Is As Valuable As Recycling For Future Generations.
All wood is full of carbon the sourced tree sequestered and when it's fire defended we have a much better chance of that carbon never releasing again. Not only when you defend 100% of the lumber in wood framed buildings do you defend the carbon storage but you are defending what an actual building fire occurs emitting tons of green house gasses into the atmosphere.
Everything we consume – from a can of soda to a sheet of paper – requires energy to manufacture, transport and disposal. This energy is usually produced by burning fossil fuels such as coal or gasoline, and burning fossil fuels means that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere.
Greenhouse gas levels are increasing at an alarming rate, and scientist say they have the potential to produce dangerous changes in our climate. All Americans are being called now to a special responsibility to waste less and protect the climate. Though the U.S. represents less than 5% of the world’s population, we use 30% of the world’s resources, create 30% of the world’s waste, and generate over 22% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Its our responsibility now to lead the world with cleaner better recycling and to build more of our structures with fire defended lumber and reduce our dependency of off shore steel. We need to pay attention to the new trends and tariffs that could really have a major impact on our ability to defend more sequestered carbon especially in mass timber CLT buildings if we can convince the producers to defend the carbon tanks from fire in all wood framed type buildings.
Let’s raise the bar and fire defend 100% of the lumber in all wood framed structures and make them all safer while we defend the carbon that is stored in every piece of lumber.
