Sustainability

Sustainability is fundamental to the future of forestry and our environment.  As proof of our commitment to be a responsible partner to our customers, Lilleheden provide FSCĀ®-certified Glulam, using Spruce from northern Scandinavia, guaranteeing legality of logging as well as sustainable use of our forests.

The production process for Glulam is a low energy process compared with other building materials.  The Glulam itself is neutral to the environment.  Even when burned, the release of CO2 is equivalent to the amount captured during the growth of the tree.

Even the waste produced in the form of wood shavings is responsibly used being burned and the heat generated directed for providing the local Hirtshals community with hot water for domestic heating.
