A Comparative Report on the Carbon Footprint of Different Timbers
Almost all solid timbers are carbon negative. However the way they are manufactured has a massive impact on their respective carbon footprint – that is to say, some have a lower footprint than others.
Modified woods are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to old growth traditional timbers, but they too can have vastly different carbon footprints.
Abodo asked world renowned timber expert Callum Hill to investigate the relative carbon footprint of a selection of natural and modified woods.
Callum researched a number of Environmental Product Declarations and prepared a report comparing the different manufacturing footprints among different woods.
We applaud the winners of this year’s Timber Design Awards, many of which made use of Abodo timbers.
To help save time and money for builders, alongside reducing timber wastage, a range of selected set lengths are now available to order.
