The Ultimate Renewable™

The Ultimate Renewable™ website has been created to give you information about Australia's forest and wood products sector. The aim 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 building 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 stored in wood and lowering the environmental impact of construction through lower embodied energy. 

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.



Forest and Wood Products Australia

The Ultimate Renewable™ is resourced by Forest and Wood Products Australia Pty Ltd (FWPA, www.fwpa.com.au) and is a collaborative effort between FWPA members and levy payers; it is supported by industry peak bodies, technical associations and companies and organisations throughout the forestry and wood products supply chain.
