Sustainability

Glulam for sustainable building 

Besides being a naturally attractive product, glulam optimises the technical properties of the renewable raw material – wood. Wood is a renewable material that can be reused or recycled. The energy use in glulam manufacture is very low compared with other construction materials. 

Like all of Stora Enso’s wood products, our posts and beams are sourced from responsibly managed forests and under a wood traceability system that is third-party-certified under the chain of custody systems FSC®, PEFC™ or both. Our glulam posts and beams for Japanese building also comply with the JAS standard for structural glulam timber.
