A CARBON FOOTPRINT THAT DOES NOT NEED TO BE OFFSET
Natural, breathable materials that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in addition to low-impact production processes guarantee that your log home will be carbon neutral.
The carbon footprint you leave does not need to be offset in advance, at the time of purchase or even after a hundred years – that is, for the entire life cycle of your Finnlamelli log home. This is how we have always done things and how we will continue to do in the future. And that is why we also take part in the international Puro.earth certification system for carbon storage.
A Finnlamelli home is a real climate action that will last long enough to be passed from parent to child.
LOG CONSTRUCTION IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
As a tree grows in a Finnish forest, it removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When the tree is used to build a new Finnlamelli home, the carbon in the tree is stored in the home’s structures. At best, carbon will be stored in these structures for hundreds of years.
We take part in the international Puro.earth certification system for carbon storage. The purpose of this certification is to carefully record and verify carbon storage, which protects both the owners of Finnlamelli homes and the buyers of carbon storage from any abuse related to carbon storage. If you wish, you can purchase the carbon storage of your Finnlamelli home for yourself.
Carbon is stored in your new Finnlamelli home to such an extent that building a log home can even produce extra energy, as more biomass than what is needed to build the log home is generated as a byproduct across the production chain.
A log home is the most eco-friendly option, also compared to an ordinary wooden house. For example, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has carried out research on ecological log buildings. According to the results of that research, log buildings do not consume as much energy or produce as much carbon dioxide emissions over their entire life cycle as an ordinary wooden house.
A Finnlamelli home is a real climate action that will last long enough to be passed from parent to child. Leave your own log carbon footprint!
HIGH-QUALITY FINNISH WORK
The logs of your new Finnlamelli home are produced using high-quality Finnish work and materials. Laminated log that is made from spruce or pine timber and has the heartwood on the surface of the log is a healthy Finnish building material. The durability of the logs have already been measured during its growth stage in the harsh conditions of Finnish forest.
Finnlamelli’s production complies with the good practices of both the Finnish Log House Industry Association and the Finnish Association for Manufacturers of Prefabricated Houses. Finnlamelli also holds a PEFC-certificate as proof of our systematic work to protect the rights of every owner of a Finnlamelli home as well as trace the origin of the wood material we use.
