The National Wood Flooring Association’s Responsible Procurement Program (RPP) has been accepted into the National Association of Home Builders’ 2015 ICC 700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS).

As a result, wood-based products that are RPP-certified are eligible to receive points toward a National Green Building Standard Certified Home. RPP is listed in NAHB’s renewable materials section of the resource efficiency chapter alongside the Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative certification programs. NGBS is the only residential green building rating system approved by ANSI as an American National Standard.
