Grant to boost adoption of sustainable mass timber in construction
Built by Nature, a network and grant-making organisation with a mission to accelerate the timber building transformation in Europe, is pleased to announce a €211,336 Accelerator Fund grant to Environmental Coalition on Standards (ECOS) to influence European Union legislation, building standards, and climate financing toward removal of regulatory barriers and an incentivised use of sustainably-harvested timber in construction.
- The targeted legislation focuses on construction products’ and buildings’ environmental performance, and carbon accounting methodologies and requirements. In addition to the provision of incentives for sustainable timber, reducing the existing bias towards traditional materials in current legislation will facilitate investment in timber buildings through the integration of embodied carbon criteria in the EU’s sustainable finance taxonomy.
