A new website has been launched for the Forestry Commission Wood Footprinter Methodology and Toolkit Research Project.
Sylva is a main partner in the project, funded by the Forestry Commission, working in collaboration with Best Foot Forward and TRADA.
The aim of this research project is to develop a methodology for the forestry and wood industry to assess the carbon footprint of wood and timber products. The approach taken will be consistent with existing standards, but sufficiently specialised to target the key features of the lifecycle of wood products, particularly recognising carbon sequestration during the growth phase and the importance of the use/end of life of timber products.
