Wood Products and Greenhouse Gas Impacts Research Report

A summary report FPInnovations that reviews 66 international scientific studies regarding the greenhouse gas impacts of wood products compared to non-wood products.

The review concludes that using wood products from sustainably managed forests rather than non-wood building products, such as cement, plastics or metals, means fewer emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). Reducing these gases is a key factor in stabilizing and eventually reducing climate change.
