NRMCA, PCA Set Record Straight on Mass Timber

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In a recent hearing of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, several Members of Congress expressed the view that mass timber is a sustainable building resource. One member of the Committee, Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), expressed the opinion that it was a suitable and preferable alternative to concrete and steel built buildings. NRMCA and PCA drafted and submitted for the official record a statement identifying the true emissions impact of mass timber.

This is the latest in efforts of various interest groups attempting to promote one building material over another under the guise of sustainability or innovation. NRMCA and PCA will conduct meetings with members of the Select Committee and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which has jurisdiction over environmental legislation, on the sustainability of concrete.
