West Fraser goes net carbon negative

West Fraser’s product range is proving that being net carbon negative is both good for the planet and business.

Countering the threat of climate change is the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced. With growing environmental consciousness, it is increasingly necessary for businesses and investors to show that their activities and investments are taking this course. Attaining net carbon negativity, as West Fraser‘s product range has done, is a significant step, demonstrating the company’s determination to be a market leader in sustainable, climate friendly products.

As wood is the main component of West Fraser’s products, carbon is sequestered and locked up for the board’s lifetime. Particleboard products have the added advantage of containing 70-80% post consumer recycled wood; this is also used in OSB. As a result, the company’s four European sites and three product ranges sequester a total of 1.18 million tonnes of CO2e per year, equivalent to the CO2 from 200,265 homes’ electricity.

West Fraser’s net carbon negative status benefits specifiers and users of the company’s engineered wood panel products. When used in construction, these products can help tip a project’s carbon count in the right direction, assisting companies to meet net zero targets, which is good for reputation, compliance and the planet.
