Climate changes and impact on raw materials

We have seen major changes in frequency and severity of draughts, wildfires and flooding over the past few years, which all impacts access to virgin wood as a raw material.

Our linear economy with an overconsumption of raw materials has put an unbearable pressure on our ecosystems. As we are trying to reverse this cycle there will be an increase demand for wood based products. If we choose to meet this increased demand by only using virgin wood, we will continue to increase depletion of natural resources. Thus, also amplifying the increase in natural disasters that reduces availability of virgin wood.

The only way out of this negative cycle is to stop incinerating waste wood and convert majority of it into new raw materials. Eco Materials shall lead this transformation.
