What is Carbon Management?

Carbon emissions and stores are increasingly important as solutions are sought to address climate change.  Since so much carbon is stored in the forest, the impacts of forest management and wood product development on carbon are of considerable interest.

Over the last decade, the Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial Materials (CORRIM) has researched life-cycle inventory (LCI) and life-cycle assessment (LCA) methods for tracking inputs and outputs across every stage of wood processing and its use as a way to measure environmental burdens.
