What are the SDGs
The SDGs, approved for the 2030 Agenda, are 17 sustainable development goals created by the United Nations (more than 150 international leaders), have universal validity and are necessary to contribute to global development, promote human well-being and protect the environment.
They also have 169 sub-goals that aim to end poverty, fight against inequality and social and economic development.

Wood and SDGs
Sustainable is not just one of the words contained in the acronym SDG, but rather one of the key concepts of the wooden construction sector in which we operate.
Building in wood offers numerous added values: it allows energy savings (read our article on the subject to find out more!), has a very low environmental impact, has recognized anti-seismic qualities and has a high level of prefabrication of the structures. Don’t you see the proximity to the SDGs 9 – 11 – 12 – 13?
Wood offers infinite possibilities, with very high performance, always keeping in mind the concept of sustainability in terms of material, supply chain and final construction.
It is very clear that the future will have to be built in a sustainable way, why not make it out of wood?
