Growing more poplars results in greater net storage of CO2; wood preserves its ability to store CO2 throughout the entire useful life of panels. Therefore, using plywood to replace the other building materials (typically cement, steel and plastic materials) ensures significant benefits in terms of impact on the climate and reduces the consumption of fossil fuels.
IPanguaneta plywood has also obtained the Blauer Engel certification which attests to the environmental, health and performance requirements.
Panguaneta plywood has been approved according to the Living Building Challenge, the world's strictest standard for “green” buildings, managed by the International Living Future Institute. Panguaneta produces more than 50% of its plywood with E05 emissions and exports panels falling within CARB2 and NAF emission classes.
