Forests have a significant role to play in the ecological transition.
Forests, the planet’s green lungs, have a crucial role to play in the fight against global warming. According to the Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020 published by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), world forests absorbed around 2.4 billion tonnes of CO2 each year between 2015 and 2020. This represents around a third of all CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion over the same period.
Protecting and restoring forests therefore helps preserve these natural carbon sinks.
In addition, forests provide renewable raw materials such as wood, which replaces more energy-consuming materials in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, such as concrete or steel. Forests can also be used to produce renewable energy from biomass, such as wood energy.
The French forest is threatened by climate change through natural disasters, rising temperatures and health risks. It is essential to support the forestry and timber industry in moving towards a more resilient form of management, through innovative and digital forest engineering methods.
This is where Everwood comes in, thanks to its positioning as an integrated player in the forestry and wood industry.
We are determined to make an active contribution to the structuring and development of the industry.
