Stakeholder Review of SCS Standards & Upcoming Audits

PCR STANDARD DEVELOPMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Through a partnership between SCS Global Services and Building Transparency, a new Product Category Rule is being developed for Forest Products. The PCR effort will seek to develop a framework to use regionally specific information to calculate and report forest carbon emissions and sequestration, including land use, to create EPDs of Forest Products. If you are interested in participating in the PCR Working Group, please contact Keith Killpack at [email protected] to request an application.  Applications for participation are due Friday, February 4th.  Applications will be reviewed and all applicants will be notified by February 15th.
