We want builders to use only sustainably timber in their buildings. Sustainably harvested timber has a very low carbon footprint compared to other building materials.
A carbon Footprint is a measure of how much impact a particular product or component has in relation to global climate change.
The use of sustainably harvested timber as a building material creates a much lower carbon footprint than does the use of other common building materials.
Recent research by the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting compared the amount of greenhouse gas emissions generated by the manufacture of timber products with the amount of greenhouse gas emissions generated by the manufacture of common alternatives. The research showed that more than 25 tonnes of greenhouse gases could be saved if timber products were used instead of the common alternatives, to build a family home.
It will stop the issues of biodiversity and greenhouse gases being sent
into the atmosphere. Keep the flow of water through the ground and protect the one thing on the earth that keeps us alive. Every second of everyday 1.5 acres of rainforest is destroyed forever.
