Accoya® wood for the Future

“The moral imperative to make big changes is inescapable…that what we take for granted may not be here for our children”

- Al Gore, 45th vice president of the United States, from his climate change
film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ (2006)

Against a backdrop of growing concern about the environmental impacts of the things we do and the materials we use the popularity of wood – a versatile, beautiful material that’s easy to use and to live with – is set to increase. It’s not just good looks and charm that will ensure that wood plays a leading role in our future, but a number of other factors, too:

  • Wood is a non-toxic, recyclable raw material
  • Wood is light yet strong and easily worked
  • Wood offers good sound absorption properties
  • Wood can be used as a bio-fuel at the end of its product life
  • Wood is our only truly sustainable resource for construction
  • Wood is a natural insulator and, as such, reduces energy used
    for heating
  • Wood reduces the effect of global warming as trees and wood products act as carbon sinks
  • Wood is sustainable and healthy: every cubic metre used saves 0.8 tonnes of CO2

By using sustainably grown wood and improving its properties without adding toxins, Accoya® helps to protect threatened species, rainforests and the environment.
