When you choose product of Vaara, you know you are getting a product that comes from sustainably managed forests. The choice of wood as a building material is also a climate act, as one cubic meter of wood sequesters an average of about 1,000 kilos of carbon dioxide, thus acting as a carbon sink.
The ability of wood to store is not lost even when it is felled from the forest, as it stores carbon in itself. The average Finnish detached house, made of wood, binds about 30 tons of carbon dioxide in its wooden structures. It is equivalent to more than 10 years of CO2 emissions from the average single car consumer.
