Forest-based products important for climate mitigation

19.6.2020

A new study from Cepi, “Climate effect of the forest-based sector in the European Union”, shows that forests and forest-based products remove a net of 806 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalents annually. This corresponds to 20% of all fossil emissions in the European Union. Jori Ringman, Director General at Cepi, called for EU policies that support consumers to move from high-carbon products to low-carbon forest-based products.
