Building More Sustainable Communities in Canada
Communities across Canada are realizing the incredible potential of mass-timber construction. When we build tall with wood, we not only reduce carbon pollution during construction by up to 45%, but because carbon stays stored in wood products like lumber, tall wood buildings continue to serve as a carbon store long after the wood used in their construction has left the forest, allowing us to build communities with a significantly lower long-term carbon footprint. In Surrey, British Columbia, the proposed development of the first-ever mass timber residential buildings will immediately change the city’s landscape and put the community on the path towards a net-zero future.
See how Surrey is becoming a model for other communities across Canada.
