The construction sector is rightly blamed for causing substantial greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, smart building design can help reduce CO2 emissions. A study examined how the building industry can contribute to the protection of our climate. When it comes to climate protection, one construction material stands out: timber.
By substituting mineral construction materials with timber, CO2 emissions can be reduced by several tons, even in relatively small projects. These are the conclusions of a study showing the way forward towards a more climate-friendly future.
