Wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council will continue to be the only kind qualifying for LEED points, after a motion to open it up to other certification programs failed to win a two-thirds majority from members of the U.S. Green Building Council. 
Of the 965 members who voted, 55% voted yes, 42% voted no, and 3% abstained. 
Although certified wood earns just one LEED point, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, American Tree Farm System, and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Systems are fighting to be included.
