What makes building with wood so ecologically sound?

As our Sustainability Report proves, Implenia is committed to environmental responsibility. Our Timber Construction team makes a major contribution to our sustainability.

Building with wood achieves this in two ways. First, wood construction processes generally emit around 1/3 as much green house gas, when compared with other construction methods. Second, the wood material itself acts as a CO2 collector, trapping and storing this greenhouse gas in its cells. Building more with wood is an important step towards a 2000-Watt society.

Switzerland has no shortage of timber. Forests cover about a third of the nation`s land area with an annual increase of 0.42%; and we only use about a third of the available amount! Since the 19th Century, Switzerland has had strict forestry laws protecting the forests and ensuring their future. Implenia Holzbau is committed to sustainable forests. Our products carry the ecologically valuable FSP, PEFC and Swiss Wood labels. For more information, check out “Swiss labels for wood as an ecological building material” on the homepage of Lignum, the umbrella organization for the Swiss timber industry.
