Wood is the world’s most environmentally friendly raw material
When you choose wooden packaging, you are also choosing nature’s own brilliant raw material. And there is plenty of it to go around.
In Denmark, we only harvest half of our forests’ annual growth measured in cubic metres of wood. The trend is the same throughout Europe: The forests are growing.
Wood also has countless positive characteristics, such as:
- It is CO2 neutral over its lifecycle
- It is both strong and flexible
- It is easy to process
- It is hygienic
- It is pleasant for all the senses
Logging is healthy for our forests, as it makes room for natural replacement and the next generation of trees.
Only the rain forests are being cleared faster than they are growing. But rain forest lumber will never be used as a raw material at DTE. Our certifications guarantee this much.
