The Forest Stewardship Council is currently investing in carbon impact research to show the benefits of FSC managed forests compared to traditionally managed forests. This effort has led to the Climate Smart Wood Group being formed, along with the FSC Supplier Search database that helps consumers locate and purchase FSC certified timber products. These resources can be found at www.buildwithfsc.com.
In addition, FSC has created a LinkedIn group called, Climate Smart Construction, to enable building professionals to share and promote climate smart projects. The Climate-Smart Construction Group is for architects, engineers, clients, policymakers, media, science, and civil society professionals who want to understand how to accelerate the ‘decarbonization’ of buildings, the building sector, and the built environment.
