A Worker’s Perspective

“Climate change affects all of us, not only as consumers but also as workers. The construction, building materials, forestry, and wood
industry, employing around 200 million workers, play an important role in contributing to and reducing CO2 emissions. Deforestation is the second largest source of carbon in the atmosphere. Buildings are responsible for about 8% of global CO2 emissions and their use increases their contribution upwards of 40%.1 However, without any doubt, the construction and wood industry can deliver a substantial contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gases and the problem of global warming. We are part of the solution.”
