Wood Shapers has committed to plant 2,000 trees in Belgium in 2020, in partnership with the Société Royale Forestière de Belgique. The SRFB is an ASBL dedicated to the protection and promotion of the forest and its sustainable management. It is responsible for the PEFC certification of private forests in the Walloon Region.
The way the carbon absorption cycle works means that a tree absorbs most CO2 during its growth. Sustainable forest management means sourcing the wood at the right time, before it deteriorates and starts re-releasing the carbon into the atmosphere that the tree absorbed during its growth (as part of the natural decomposition process of wood).
Transforming wood into a construction material avoids this by ‘trapping’ the carbon in the material. Wood construction thus has the advantage of having a positive carbon footprint.
The wood used by Wood Shapers is exclusively sourced in Europe to further limit the transportation of this natural resource.
A tree whose growth period has ended no longer releases oxygen. Cutting it down creates room for a new tree that will produce some. Transforming a mature tree into a construction material enables to store the carbon within its fibers indefinitely.
