The use of sustainable wood siding is more than just a fad. Wood is one of the building materials that is most in demand today and this situation will surely continue for a long time. The reason is simple, the construction sector, driven by the new legislation, has made a determined commitment to an architecture with lower energy consumption and more sustainable . In this scenario, wood is unrivaled.
According to the new Technical Building Code , as of December 31, 2020, all newly constructed buildings must have almost zero energy consumption (for public buildings it was already so since 2018). This measure seeks to significantly reduce the energy impact of buildings, which accounts for 40% of the energy consumed and 36% of CO2 emissions, as well as the environmental impacts associated with construction materials.
Wood has a negative carbon footprint, and there is no other construction material that allows us to reduce the carbon footprint of a building more significantly. Wood leads other materials in CO2 emissions, in the effect on water quality, and in overall environmental impact when measured over the full life cycle of the material.
At Beautexwodd we manufacture panels and cladding from PEFC certified sustainable wood . These certifications guarantee that the wood used comes from sustainably managed forests and that the wood panel has been produced by a manufacturer who also guarantees the maintenance of a PEFC Chain of Custody System that reaches the final product.
In this way, we contribute to a new form of construction with a lower carbon footprint, more sustainable and better for everyone.
