A traditional 100 m2 2-storey wooden frame-house contains 5–6 m3 more wood

than a brick house of the same size. Consequently, every wooden frame-

house saves over 4 tons of CO2 (that’s about 14,000 miles of driving

worth of CO2). Because of this, the maintenance costs of a wooden frame-

house can be lower due to the thermal efficiency of wood. If all the

houses in the UK which were built since 1945 had had a wooden frame, over

300 million tons of CO2 would have been saved. The majority of wooden

products, starting from wooden frames, can help designers and

manufacturers improve the ratings of ecohouses. Wood is an effective

carbon-free material, even when taking into account its transportation. A

wooden frame has the lowest CO2 cost of all construction materials. Seven

percent of the energy used to manufacture wood products comes from wood

off-cuts and regenerated wood. Five-times more energy is used when

manufacturing concrete, and six times more when manufacturing steel, than

when manufacturing wood products. Every cubic metre of wood contains

0.8–0.9 tons of CO2. Try using wood as a substitute for other materials,

and on average you are saving 1.1 tons in CO2 emissions.
