Wood Co2ts Less Resource Hub

A campaign for the UK timber industry

Fact 1

Trees capture CO₂ from the atmosphere and store it as carbon

Fact 2

Mature trees are harvested and their carbon is captured and stored in buildings and other wood products

Fact 3

More trees are planted and the size of the European forest carbon sink continues to grow

Fact 4

Using timber contributes to reducing CO₂ levels in the atmosphere in three ways:

  • by carbon capture in the growing forest carbon sink
  • by carbon capture in the increasing wood product carbon store
  • and by substitution for CO₂-intensive materials

Fact 5

UK forestry is an important part of the UK economy

What is the Wood CO2ts Less Campaign?

Wood CO2ts Less is an industry-wide campaign developed by Wood for Good for the UK timber associations and member companies.

Our aim is to promote the use of all wood products as low carbon materials and illustrate how using wood can help reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and contribute to slowing climate heating.

Who is involved?

The campaign involves Wood for Good members and other advocates of the timber industry across the UK and further afield.

Our intention is for associations, producers, and merchants across the industry to get involved in the campaign, amplifying our shared aim to promote wood as a low carbon material.

Check out and follow the #woodCO2tsless on social media to follow activities from across the industry. For a full list of our members and supporters click here. (link)
