CARBON FOOTPRINT

The Carbon footprint of a house measures the amount of Carbon actually used to build the house.  Whilst Steel and Concrete by their nature have high Carbon Footprints, Timber on the other hand absorbs and stores Carbon during its growth to maturity and continues to retain the stored Carbon once it is incorporated into a timber structure.
