Engineered Hardwood Flooring Deemed Carbon-Negative Material

Sterling, VA, October 20, 2023-Decorative Hardwoods Association sponsored the USDA Forest Products Laboratory's life-cycle assessment of prefinished engineered wood flooring in the eastern U.S. 

“Last week, the laboratory published the results. In a win for our industry and the environment, the assessment states, ‘This study showed that engineered wood flooring can be considered a carbon-negative material that stores carbon (22.85 kg CO2eq/m2 flooring) for decades and thus can help to mitigate climate change.’”
