At COP28 in Dubai the Australian Government, with 16 other countries, committed to increase the use of timber in the built environment by 2030.
The Forest and Climate Leaders’ Partnership Coalition on Greening Construction with Sustainable Wood made the announcement today.
Natasa Sikman, Acting CEO of the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) said that, “AFPA congratulates the Australian Government for signing up to this Coalition and its commitment today. Wood from sustainably managed forests provides climate solutions within the construction sector.
