Tackle Climate Change, Use Wood

In the context of climate change, sustainably managed forests—and the products derived from them—play an essential mitigating role.

Today, more than ever before, we must find ways to reduce the pressure on our planet’s environment and finite resources. By choosing products with a light carbon footprint and by reducing waste by recycling or reusing, we can have a real impact on climate change now and into the future. We need urgent action on climate change, and using forest products is part of the answer. Together, we can make a difference when it comes to climate change by choosing wood.
