Denmark set the direction for possibilities
for increasing wood in construction
  • The production of steel and concrete are more CO2 heavy than the production of wood based materials.
  • Using wood based materials for construction in stead of steel and concrete can generate significant reductions in the emission of Denmark’s greenhouse gases.
  • By increasing the use of wood for several construction purposes the total energy consumption is reduced significantly – both in terms of new buildings, renovation and reconstruction.
  • Wood absorbs and stores CO2 while it grows and continuous to do so when it is converted into building materials.
  • The new think tank CHORA Connection will ensure increasing use of wood based materials in construction work and thus support UN’s 2015 goals for sustainable development.
