Implementing Carbon Drawdown: How Climate Smart Forestry and Carbon Negative Building Materials Can Help Reach Global Climate Goals

During this interactive session with Whole Forest you will:

  • Learn about the opportunities to go beyond Zero Carbon and towards buildings that support carbon capture and storage by sourcing carbon negative materials.
  • Understand the natural carbon cycle that regulates the global climate and the role of forests, agriculture, and buildings in modifying climate.
  • Evaluate climate smart forestry, forest management and wood product strategies that promote carbon storage in forests and transfer the benefit to buildings (biogenic carbon).
  • Review examples of products that reduce embodied carbon by validating carbon performance through an LCA from the forest to end of product life, with a highlight on interior surfaces.
  • Dive into a Whole Forest case study:  Innovation in negative-carbon hardwood surface products based on climate smart forestry in Ecuador.
