Wood is the world’s most renewable raw material. For this reason, forests, and the wood they provide are vital in the fight against climate change. As the effects of climate change impact our environment, the use of renewable and sustainable building materials has never been more important.
The various stages of the wood story – planting and renewal, growth, harvesting and use are part of a renewable cycle that takes and stores carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, making wood a truly carbon-neutral building material.
No matter what position you take on climate change, we each need to look for ways in which we can contribute to keeping the planet protected. Using wood is something we can all do to help the environment. By demanding and using more wood, we can ensure that more trees will be planted and more carbon dioxide will be absorbed from the atmosphere. The result is a better world for ourselves, our families and future generations.
Protecting old growth trees isn’t enough. The best way to absorb more carbon dioxide is to use more wood and plant more trees. It’s that simple… and we intend to make a difference.
