What is meant by climate change

Unfortunately, climate change is today a well-known phenomenon at an international level as it has an increasingly evident impact on the environment and on people’s lives all over the world. But what is it about? It is a phenomenon that occurs when there are significant and lasting changes in the climate of a region or the entire planet. These changes can be caused by several factors, such as the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, deforestation and the increase in human activities that produce greenhouse gases.

Climate change can lead to several consequences, such as sea level rise, the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and droughts, and the loss of biodiversity.

To prevent climate change, it is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and implement sustainable technologies. It is also important to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the environment and adopting more sustainable lifestyles.

Wood for the environment

To prevent the effects of climate change, wood is one of the solutions. Wood can be used sustainably to help mitigate the effects of climate change.

To begin with, wooden buildings are lighter and require less energy to build than masonry buildings, which means they emit less greenhouse gases during their construction.

Furthermore, thanks to their excellent thermal performance (cool in summer and warm in winter) combined with sustainable energy solutions, it has minimal impacts even during its life cycle, as well as guaranteeing maximum cost-effectiveness.

Wood can be used as a building material for structures that absorb carbon dioxide from the air, thus helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

However, it is important to make sure that the wood used is obtained from sustainably managed forests, thus verifying that it has FSC or PEFC certificates.

So if you love the environment and want to preserve it, you just have to choose wood because it turns out to be the most far-sighted decision for a climate change-proof future.
