Timber Industry Net Zero Roadmap

8th February 2023

TDUK, with input from the TRA and other member organisations, has recently published its report on how the timber sector can address the climate crisis to build a Net Zero future.

The report sets out the key causes of carbon emissions within our industry and how we can make changes to reduce them by 2050.

Key areas for change are:

  • How we can improve the efficiency of production and distribution of materials.
  • Moving over to electric powered vehicles for the transportation of products, and hydrogen for harvesting.
  • Moving over to biomass CHP, and other renewable forms of energy, at production facilities.
  • Working with our overseas supply chain to implement similar measures to reduce imported embodied emissions.
