About Us

The Ultimate Renewable™

The aim of The Ultimate Renewable™ is to help everyone understand the natural advantages of wood and its positive contribution to reducing the effects of climate change.

The term The Ultimate Renewable™ is recognition of the fact that unlike other mainstream materials, wood and wood products are managed for planting, growing and harvesting, whether in single-species plantations or mixed species forests. This process leads to a range of advantages including reducing the resource depletion of our planet, increasing the amount of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere and the carbon dioxide stored in wood.


Forest & Wood Products Australia

The Ultimate Renewable™ is an initiative of Forest & Wood Products Australia Pty Ltd (FWPA) and is a collaborative effort between FWPA Members and levy payers and the Australian Government; it is supported by industry peak bodies, technical associations and companies and organisations throughout the forestry and wood products supply chain.

Make It Wood

Make It Wood - Do Your World Some Good is Planet Ark’s campaign to encourage the increased use of responsibly sourced wood as a building material. When sourced responsibly, wood can play a big part in helping tackle climate change. Make It Wood details the benefits of wood and provides examples of how responsibly sourced wood has been used across the world as a building material and for everyday items.
