Growing demand for sustainable building materials is a leading consideration in today’s architectural market. The demand for FSC Certified wood products for Greenstar buildings in New Zealand is growing rapidly, especially with public buildings. In many cases now there are procurement policies that make this certification a prerequisite for selecting suppliers.

Forward thinking design practices throughout New Zealand are seeing the long term benefits of adopting these socially responsible building products and practices.

In New Zealand due to the use of FSC wood not being as advanced in its use yet compared to European countries not all local manufacturers holding the certification to be able to produce or supplying FSC wood, this can make sourcing a challenge for designers and contractors alike. Another certification that is available if PEFC which is also popular with European wood manufacturers.
