Why build in wood?

Climate goals are no longer just talk, it’s time to walk the talk. At the same time the demand for housing is sky rocketing. We take a deep dive into why building in wood could help us obtain climate goals and at the same time produce attractive buildings that are economically sustainable as well.

Excerpts of the program:

  • Why build in wood? Peter Eriksson, Minister for Housing and Digital Development
  • Climate impact from building design and construction – experiences from LCA case studies, Tove Malmqvist
  • What needs to change to accelerate wood building – panel, chaired by Susanne Rudenstam, TräbyggnadskanslietHow to build in wood?

This topic aims to show inspiring projects, toolkits and build confidence to start designing, constructing, building and procuring wood buildings.
