SUSTAINABILITY

DEMAND OUTSTRIPS SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY

Global demand for timber is constantly growing, with a forecast compound annual growth rate of 34% in Asia through to 2030 — increasing the burden on natural forests. Global population growth means demand from major consumer and end-product producing countries including China, India, and Vietnam are dependent on imports to sustain growth.

Sustainable reclaimed timber provides a environmentally conscious alternative to conventionally sourced logsto supply our insatiable need for wood and wood products.

GLOBAL FOREST COVER LOSS

The UN FAO estimates 18 million acres of forest lands are lost across the world each year. That’s approximately 36 football fields per minute. This deforestation also contributes an estimated 6 to 17% to global carbon emissions.

Plentiful resources and inefficient logging practices lead to a lot of waste. What once was waste has turned to gold, as these hidden treasures increase in value.
