The CO2 Bank is a web-based database set up by the forestry and timber industry to document the greenhouse gas reductions that can be achieved by opting for timber products. Since the launch of the database in January 2009, more than 370,000 tons of CO2 have been saved through projects documented in the CO2 Bank. This corresponds to the emissions of 40,000 people living in Germany.
Matthias Eisfeld is the managing director of the CO2 Bank and has worked for many years in the timber industry. He is passionate about climate change and sustainable resources, such as wood.
