The Ultimate Renewable™

The aim of The Ultimate Renewable™ is to help everyone understand the natural advantages of wood and its positive contribution to reducing the effects of climate change.

The term The Ultimate Renewable™ is recognition of the fact that unlike other mainstream materials, wood and wood products are managed for planting, growing and harvesting, whether in single-species plantations or mixed species forests. This process leads to a range of advantages including reducing the resource depletion of our planet, increasing the amount of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere and the carbon dioxide stored in wood.

Forest & Wood Products Australia

The Ultimate Renewable™ is an initiative of Forest & Wood Products Australia Pty Ltd (FWPA) and is a collaborative effort between FWPA Members and levy payers and the Australian Government; it is supported by industry peak bodies, technical associations and companies and organisations throughout the forestry and wood products supply chain.

Make It Wood

Make It Wood - Do Your World Some Good is Planet Ark’s campaign to encourage the increased use of responsibly sourced wood as a building material. When sourced responsibly, wood can play a big part in helping tackle climate change. Make It Wood details the benefits of wood and provides examples of how responsibly sourced wood has been used across the world as a building material and for everyday items.



Protected Biodiversity

Did you know?

A government report showed there is no evidence proving that harvesting timber from native forests has reduced overall forest biodiversity or led to the extinction of any species of plant or animal.
