Webinar: How the wooden furniture you design, make, and sell stores carbon and combats climate change
Furniture designers, manufacturers, and retailers play an essential part in the fight against climate change by sourcing wood from sustainably managed forests, which helps increase forests' capacity to store CO2. The stored carbon will then remain in wooden furniture products throughout their lifetimes.
So, how does it work? Do non-certified forests store CO2 the same way as certified forests? How is carbon stored in wooden furniture, and how much is stored?
This is what we discussed in our “How the Wooden Furniture you Design, Make and Sell stores Carbon and Combats Climate Change” webinar on 7 September.

Our CEO Michael Berger drew on his wealth of experience in environmental and quality management, sustainable supply chain management, and management systems, and over a decade with PEFC, to detail the vital role that PEFC can play in alleviating climate change.
Next, Francesco Negro, an academic and researcher based at the University of Torino, broke down the process of carbon storage in wooden furniture, how to calculate the amount that is stored, and how furniture companies can use this information.
The webinar was moderated by our Head of Communications, Thorsten Arndt.
