Building Sustainably: The benefits of building with FSC-certified mass timber
Most climate neutrality game plans rely on healthy and resilient forests to succeed. Destruction of the world’s forests, however, continues to be a major climate crisis contributor—with approximately 13 per cent of annual carbon emissions occurring from deforestation (source: IUCN). At the same time, forests have the potential to sequester the construction sector’s annual emissions five times over.
So how can we protect the world’s forests?
In short, increasing the demand for sustainably sourced wood can safeguard forests from major deforestation drivers. FSC certification exists as an effective forest protection solution to prevent deforestation, preserve biodiversity and enhance carbon storage in forests. Certified forest products are also given a second life as buildings – retaining carbon over their lifetime.
When designing green buildings of the future, architects and designers play a key role in protecting forests by specifying the use of certified mass timber products like cross-laminated timber.
