Low-carbon buildings

Low-carbon buildings

As construction materials used in the world today account for 11% of the global CO2 emissions, there is a need to shift from non-renewable construction materials like steel and concrete to renewable, low carbon and circular building materials, such as wood. It is important to look at the lifecycle impact of a building and new building concepts that can support green cities and communities. We can help you preserve the future with low-carbon buildings based on wood.
