Sustainable building

For the people of today, building with timber is becoming more and more synonymous with natural and sustainable building. In the socio-political context, timber is connected with the outlook of achieving nearly closed material and energy cycles and being able to make a maximum contribution towards addressing the challenges of climate change. 

As a model for sustainability and the environment, the use of timber in construction has a number of convincing arguments: 

  • The forests in Europe are an inexhaustible source of raw material for building with timber.
  • In addition to its raw material function, the forest displays numerous sustainable environmental effects.
  • Forests and wood are a powerful option to combat climate change.
  • Wood as a renewable building material can replace the non-renewable building materials of limited availability. 
  • Wood can be re-used as a material at all stages of production and processing.
  • Wood lightens the burden for landfill spaces due to its ability to be recycled. 
  • Building with wood already meets crucial sustainability requirements during the construction phase.
  • Wooden buildings can be created in a way which is gentle to the earth, efficient in terms of materials, and which uses little energy.
  • During their use, wooden buildings are characterised by superior energy efficiency.
  • Wooden buildings are durable and can be flexibly adapted to changing intentions for use.
  • Wooden buildings can be recycled at the end of the life cycle in the natural cycle of substances. 
  • Timber constructions prove to be superior in important environmental parameters over other building materials.
