Zero Waste

forestry facts

Did you know that since the early 1990s, GHG emissions in Canada’s forest sector have declined significantly? Part of how we did it was by converting wood chips, sawdust, and bark — materials that might otherwise be considered “waste” — into bioenergy to power our operations.[14]

Now we’re looking outward. By exploring new uses for every part of a harvested tree, Canada’s forest sector could help address some of our most pressing climate change challenges.[25] Be it the biomass that will help reduce our country’s reliance on fossil fuels, the wood fibre-based bioplastics that can replace the single-use plastics currently flooding our landfills and oceans, the wood lignin substitute being used to replace carbon-intensive bitumen for our roads, or the mass timber being used to build more sustainable communities, sustainably-sourced, responsibly-managed and renewable wood products can help grow a more circular economy.[25]
