Abstract

The climate emergency calls for urgent measures to minimize the harmful effects of the building sector. Where possible, reducing high-impact materials and building with wood and other bio-based materials help reduce harmful emissions and the use of mineral-based materials while increasing carbon sequestration. As a result, the interest in using bio-based materials, and especially wood, in construction has increased. Wood is a renewable material with high strength to weight ratio that has been utilized since ancient times, including in many global indigenous building cultures.
