Carbon Accounting & How We Can Build More Sustainably

Innovative mass timber and light wood-frame structures can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment. In this session, two experts in sustainability will discuss sustainable forestry and the environmental attributes of wood structures, factors that influence carbon in wood products, and how environmental impacts are tracked through life cycle assessment (LCA). They’ll also highlight where wood used in North America comes from, and address some of the myths and misconceptions about carbon storage in our forests and buildings.
