Wood in construction: 25 cases of Nordic good practice

Nordic forestry innovation has huge potential to cascade the use of wood into high-value products that bring multiple co-benefits.

In the construction sector, it is clear that when paired with sustainable forest management, there is a potential for wood to act as a carbon sink when used as a construction material. However, other environmental, economic and social co-benefits are currently under-recognised, and as such, wood’s full potential throughout the construction value chain is yet to be realised.

This publication, by the Nordic Wood in Construction Secretariat, showcases 25 examples of Nordic projects from throughout the value chain working with wood in exciting and innovative ways. The aim is to demonstrate the benefits and drivers for building with wood, providing inspiration for the next generation of wood construction projects.
