Wood Co₂ts less campaign launched by Wood for Good

Wood for Good officially launched their Wood Co₂ts less campaign on 13 July. This is an industry-wide initiative developed for UK timber associations and member companies. Its aim is to promote the use of all wood products as low carbon materials and illustrate how using wood can help reduce CO₂ in the atmosphere and contribute to slowing climate heating.

Jeremy English, Södra Sales Director, said: “It’s heartening to see the timber industry rallying around one common goal: to raise awareness of timber’s environmental benefits. It’s a brilliant campaign and as a member of both Swedish Wood and Wood for Good – and a passionate advocate for the benefits of building with responsibly-sourced timber – we’re of course proud to support it.”

Four key facts form the staple of the Wood Co₂ts less campaign:

  • Using wood from sustainably managed forests instead of other materials is one of the simplest ways to reduce the carbon emissions generated by the construction industry.
  • Wood captures and stores carbon for the life of the wood product.
  • Using wood instead of other materials saves CO₂ emissions, both through the carbon captured and stored in the wood product and the avoidance of using alternative CO₂-intensive materials.
  • Using wood in construction is a cost-effective solution to carbon capture.
