The forest and the forest industry’s products have a key role to play in countering climate change. Active, sustainable forestry can increase growth in the forest and also generate more products to replace fossil-based materials and processes.
A growing forest is good for the climate. The more the forest grows, the more carbon dioxide is absorbed by the trees and stored in their wood and roots. However, research shows that the greatest climate benefit comes from using forest raw material in a sustainable way to produce different recyclable products and bioenergy.
It does not add new quantities of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and can replace materials and energy sources that have an adverse effect on our climate.
