4. What is the impact of transporting wood from British Columbia (B.C.), Canada to India?

Although B.C. is located far from India and the products must be shipped around the world, they can still be sourced from B.C. without negatively impacting the environment.

An independent study into the impact of importing wood from B.C. to India confirms that the CO₂ stored in wood products far outweighs the extra CO₂ generated by manufacturing and shipping wood products to India.

For every container of lumber sent to India from B.C., 17,498 kgs. of CO₂ is taken out of the atmosphere. This is a very positive environmental impact which is even better if you consider the CO₂ also stored in the wood that will not need to be harvested within India or unsustainable tropical forests.
