Here at Redwood Empire we believe it is of the utmost importance to promote green building practices in the World of Forestry and construction. By adopting green building strategies, we can maximize both economic and environmental performance. According to the EPA over 39% of total energy is used in construction, Over 68% of total electricity consumption and over 30% of total carbon dioxide emissions. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by efficiently using energy.
Building Green Crucial To Our Environment
Buildings have a tremendous impact on economy, human health and most importantly the environment. The energy used to heat and power buildings leads to the consumption of large amounts of energy, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels. Using a natural wood, such as redwood, leaves a very minimal carbon footprint. It is completely sustainable and eco-friendly.
Some of the Environmental benefits of building green are enhancing and protecting the biodiversity of our ecosystems. But most importantly, it will conserve and restore natural resources. We like to promote that there is more redwood available today than anytime in history with some of the strictest force you laws in the world.
Building Green not only makes an impact on our resources but also improves our overall quality of life.
