Low carbon construction

Challenges, solutions and impacts
Table: problem solution impact of construction

Faced with the urgency of reducing the carbon footprint of the building sector, constructing with more wood will require systematic cross-sectoral thinking and strengthened knowledge and innovation, capacities and even legislative or financial incentives.

Building with wood requires  innovative solutions to overcome the technical challenges. But  there are almost no limits to  wood as a construction material. We at  UNECE support well informed decision making in using  wood as a  leading nature-based solutions for low carbon or neutral carbon construction.
