Wood is Nature
Timber is a nearly endless renewable natural resource. 90% of the timber which is used in Europe has its origin in European forests. Due to sustainable agriculture and forestry, which means that the number of trees which are cut down is a lot smaller than the number of trees that are growing, the tree population in European forests is increasing annually. As environmentally aware manufacturers we have committed ourselves to use almost exclusively European timber in order to keep transport routes as short as possible.
Trees withdraw carbon dioxide from the air, absorb the carbon and produce oxygen. When considering the life-cycle-balance of wood, the use of timber as construction material clearly outperforms other building materials such as concrete or steel. As the use of wood as a raw material is CO2 neutral, the use of timber as the building material of choice can be seen as an ecologically sound alternative. The eco-balance and life-cycle assessment of timber buildings are excellent and this is the reason why the use of timber as a building material can be seen as an active and substantial contribution to climate protection.
