wood carbon seminars

The Wood Carbon Seminars was an 8-part webinar series hosted by the Carbon Leadership Forum in the Spring of 2020.  It brought together wood experts to answer common and critical questions about the carbon impacts of wood from the building industry.

The webinars were organized around four main categories: 1) Background and Basics, 2) LCA and Wood, 3) Tracking Carbon in North America, and 4) Wood and the Building Industry.  For each category, three speakers were asked to present on a specific topic in the first week and return for a Q&A discussion session the following week. The recordings and slides for these presentations and discussion sessions can be found in the Resources section below.

The CLF also collected questions from the audience over the course of the webinar series to be answered by the speakers outside of the live webinar sessions.  These Q&As are also available in the Resources section below.
