The construction sector is responsible for 19% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and around 50% of the UK’s CO2 emissions. Whilst inroads have been made to reduce the carbon impact of using buildings, we also need to reduce the carbon impact of the buildings themselves – we need to find a better way to build our buildings. Mass timber construction enables us to build buildings with a reduced carbon footprint due to the materials and processes employed. It also enables us to build buildings with a net zero carbon footprint due to the carbon sequestered in the building structure. Mass timber construction enables us to construct the buildings we require without destroying the environment we live in. Mass timber construction is the future of construction, it is also our future.
