Jun 25 | AIA East Bay COTE Event: Mass Timber


COTE – Committee on the Environment:

MASS TIMBER: How it could save the world!


This program explains why increased forest protection and improved stewardship are key to addressing the climate crisis and reducing the embodied carbon of wood products — and how the green building movement can help.

Learning objectives:

  • Forests’ role in combatting climate change

  • Is increased wood use and mass timber construction beneficial or detrimental?

  • Forest carbon: what it is, how it works and why it determines the real carbon footprint of wood products

  • Climate-friendlier forestry and practical wood procurement strategies to promote it

  • Illegally logged and traded wood products: the climate connection + a new and innovative approach to avoiding illegal wood in building construction
