"We’re pleased that wood products have again been recognised for their inherent carbon sequestration qualities. Wood products facilities use all parts of the raw material not only in the manufacture of carbon-sequestering products used in everyday life, but also do so using carbon-neutral biomass energy, offsetting any CO2 that would have otherwise been released to the atmosphere from more carbon intensive products produced using fossil fuels.," said Mr Glowinsky.

"Use of our products also creates an economic incentive for private landowners to replant trees – making an additional positive contribution to the carbon cycle – rather than result in conversion of land for development.

Moreover, the US Department of Agriculture recently recognised wood products as ‘one of the most advanced’ building materials in the world. All told, we believe our products are part of the solution in mitigating for climate change."
