The Future of Wood Building Products in a Changing Climate

September 9, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm


The Yale Forest Forum is excited to announce the next speaker series for the fall 2021 semester, jointly hosted by the Center for Industrial Ecology and the Yale School of Architecture.

The Future of Wood Building Products in a Changing Climate

Wood is a renewable resource that has wide material applications in many industries. Wood products sourced from sustainably managed forests store carbon and can play an important role in combating climate change. Recent innovations in the use of wood have led to the development of new products that can replace traditional fossil-based carbon-intensive materials, particularly in the construction and energy sectors. Understanding the potential environmental impacts and societal implications of increases in both conventional and emerging wood products across their respective life cycles, as well as their possible reuse in a circular construction economy, is critical in assessing the climate mitigation potential of wood vs. other materials.

What is the future role of forest products in addressing climate, resources, societal, and environmental challenges? What are the environmental, economic, and societal implications for using more forest products? Hear from speakers representing forestry, industrial ecology, architecture, conservation, and academia.

Join us every Thursday from September 16-November 18 from 11:30am-12:10pm ET.
