FOREST LOSS (DEFORESTATION) IS THE WORLD’S SECOND LARGEST SOURCE OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS.

 

These gases contribute significantly to climate change but by choosing wood products from sustainably managed sources, where trees are replanted as they are felled, where wood is reclaimed and upcycled we can help to tackle this problem.

The best way to ensure that timber comes from a sustainable source is to use an independently certified supplier, or to ask suppliers whether they use certified timber.

That is why Pohon Industries only sells FSC certified wood products.

Key facts:

  • wood products that come from well managed forests have the most benefits in terms of combating climate change, as more trees are planted in place of those cut down
  • buying wood from certified forests ensures that those forests have been sustainably managed
  • well managed woodlands generally store more carbon than stands that are not harvested

Key message:

ensuring that people buy wood from certified forests can help to tackle the global problem of deforestation
