We create awareness and knowledge about building products improving indoor climate and environment.
Using timber instead of concrete or bricks, for example, reduces emissions from the materials production by approximately 1 kg of CO2 per kilogram of timber used (Kram, 2001).
Even with fairly moderate substitution, one may reduce the climate emissions by some 20 to 30% (Nemry et al., 2001; Pingoudet al., 2003;Thormark, 2007). Over 50% is possible given less conventional materials and solutions (Goverse et al., 2001). Read more
