Guiding Principles for Sustainable Federal Buildings

For products such as structural fiberboard, the applicable Guiding Principle for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings depends on what characteristics are included in the product. If it has recycled content it would be GP 5, if it is low-emitting it would be GP 4, if it's both, it would be included in both. "Low emitting" would be any product that has a low emissions or low VOC standard.
