Seminar "Wood & Sustainability" I Bauzentrum Munich I 23.05.2019

'Think globally, act locally' is one of the fundamental principles of climate protection. In the area of procurement there are also some possibilities to stay true to that principle of locality. For instance, those who buy wooden products of short distances which derive from sustainable managed forests avoid overfelling and high emissions. It always depends on the "grey energy" of the production chain and the length of the transport routes, as these influence the ecological footprint.

If you would like to find out more about the topic of wood from short distances and concrete procurement practice, register for the seminar "Wood and Sustainability", 23.05.2019 at the Bauzentrum Munich.

For registration please contact Mr Philipp Strohmeier.

The event is part of the CaSCo project.
