About Cambium

Cambium, a pioneering company in the field of sustainable wood utilization, is revolutionizing the way we think about urban wood waste and its potential impact on the environment. At the core of the company's mission is the transformation of fallen urban trees, which would otherwise be discarded, into high-value wood products.

This innovative approach not only prevents wood waste but also contributes to new tree planting, creating a sustainable cycle that benefits both the environment and local communities. Founded with a deep understanding of sustainable wood use and climate action, Cambium's journey began with a focus on reimagining the urban wood supply chain.

Carbon Smart Wood

Cambium Carbon's Carbon Smart Wood™ solution represents a revolutionary approach to sustainable wood utilization, playing a vital role in combating climate change and promoting sustainable practices.

This innovative material is sourced from fallen trees, which would otherwise contribute to landfill waste. By salvaging these trees, Cambium prevents the release of carbon dioxide and methane that occurs when wood decomposes in landfills.

A key feature of Carbon Smart Wood™ is its low environmental impact compared to traditional lumber production.

The process of transforming fallen trees into this sustainable wood not only reduces carbon footprint but also keeps the carbon sequestered in the wood, instead of releasing it back into the atmosphere.

This makes Carbon Smart Wood™ a strategic choice for mitigating climate impact, especially in construction and other industries where wood is heavily used. Beyond repurposing fallen trees, Cambium's approach also includes a commitment to urban reforestation. A portion of the profits from Carbon Smart Wood™ sales is allocated to planting new trees in urban areas.

This not only supports the ecosystem but also contributes to the natural process of carbon sequestration, further aiding in the battle against climate change. The adoption of Carbon Smart Wood™ sets a new standard in the wood industry, encouraging other companies to shift towards more sustainable practices.

This industry-wide change can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the construction and manufacturing sectors.

For consumers, choosing Carbon Smart Wood™ is more than a product selection; it represents a commitment to a sustainable and climate-conscious approach. Each purchase supports a movement that prioritizes the health of the planet, making every consumer a part of the solution to climate change.
