Since time immemorial, our forests have provided an important natural resource: wood. In today’s times of climate change, it is becoming increasingly important to use natural renewable resources in a more environmentally friendly way.

Wood is the only construction material that can store CO2. Combining this fact with our energy-saving production processes, the result is a particularly favourable carbon footprint for ZÜBLIN Timber‘s construction systems. We only use wood from sustainable, PEFC-certified forests to produce our building systems. Our intelligent timber construction systems allow us to effectively develop sustainable, energy-efficient, and appealing buildings.

We are member of the the HOLZ VON HIER initiative

Building with wood is considered to be climate-friendly. But a truly positive carbon footprint also depends on where the material is sourced from. HOLZ VON HIER is the only European environmental label that identifies and assesses the transit distance and the associated impact on the environment. Depending on the type of product, the initiative sets a maximum number of kilometres that the wood is allowed to travel. In addition, the timber must also come from certified sustainable forestry sources.

ZÜBLIN Timber mainly sources its wood from PEFC-certified forests and attaches great importance to energy-saving manufacturing processes. With the HOLZ VON HIER® certification, ZÜBLIN Timber now also offers its customers the opportunity to include local sourcing as a criterion for reliably choosing a product.

HOLZ VON HIER certifies individual products, not the company. The origin of the certified products is verified though an individual certificate and an ID number. ZÜBLIN Timber offers LENO® cross-laminated timber with the HOLZ VON HIER® certification.
