Wooden construction elements often exhibit lower life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than conventional counterparts ('material substitution effect'). Moreover, the building stock represents a carbon (C) sink if timber inflows (construction) surpass outflows (demolition) ('C-stock effect'). A dynamic stock model incorporating these effects is applied to quantify potential climate benefits of wood construction in Austria's residential building sector. Read More
