How can Accoya be considered sustainable if it uses wood from New Zealand?

Take a look at the carbon footprint of Accoya

A common measure of sustainability is the carbon footprint of a material and it is true that transport is a contributing factor to a larger carbon footprint. However, transport is only part of the equation and studies that also take account of the rapid carbon sequestration during the growth of the trees used for Accoya and the carbon value of by-products (which are used by other industries and are therefore offset against carbon costs in our process) show that the carbon footprint of Accoya is less than unsustainably sourced tropical hardwoods and significantly less than that of other man made materials such as uPVC, aluminium, concrete and steel.
