Climate Change & Carbon

Forest Carbon

The forests that supply the industry’s raw material remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon – not only in trees, but also below ground in soils and root systems, and ultimately in forest products. These forests and their carbon sequestration potential are affected by management practices, climate, and by the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). NCASI’s research to address forest carbon-related issues is a joint effort between the Sustainable Manufacturing & Climate Program, and the Forestry Program, and is oriented towards quantifying forest carbon and identifying approaches that our Member Companies can use to enhance forest carbon storage on the ground.
