I would think by recognizing other forest certification programs for this credit USGBC could bring down the premium for certified wood materials in the market, thereby reducing first cost to owners pursuing this credit for their LEED projects. This would be a positive change and encourage more owners/developers to pursue this credit IMHO since it is not a huge point advantage for projects using a substantial amount of wood. There would have to be common standards for each certification program to meet to keep the integrity of the certification.
