Carbon and Climate

At Boise Cascade®, we have the opportunity to respond to the effects of climate change through our environmental stewardship practices. We transform trees, which are renewable resources, into dependable building products that store carbon for years to come.

Responsible forest management practices promote abundant, healthy woodlands which sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Wood products help lessen the impact of climate change by the use of wood biomass as a primary fuel source in manufacturing.

We use the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) for guidance in communicating our position and performance relative to climate. We support science-based organizations, like National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI), to gather credible information on the relationships and impacts between climate change and our business.

We disclose information about the impacts of sustainability related to our businesses using the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board framework: Wood Products SASB Disclosure and BMD SASB Disclosure.
