Global Wood Tech uses only mass timber components certified PEFC or FSC® and complying with the International standards relevant for Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). Globally, mass timber construction is a revolutionary low-carbon footprint system. The production of CLT panels results in a final storage of carbon dioxide, while producing one ton of concrete emits nearly one ton of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Compared to steel and concrete construction systems, the overall carbon footprint of a CLT building is lowered by up to 75%.
As it is available readily manufactured from sustainably managed forests as well as its long-term storage of the carbon absorbed by the sustainably grown trees, the production of CLT results in substantially fewer greenhouse gas emissions than many non-wood materials. Due to their engineered manner panels are manufactured to exact measurements and requirements which results is less wastage and a simplified building process.
