What motivates our employees above all is a love of the forest, wood and its transformation.
Monnet-Sève Sougy has defined 4 areas of development to bolster its action in the French timber industry, to ensure the management of softwood species, and to offer increasingly environmentally-friendly perspectives:
4/ Maximize wood construction as a means of fighting global warming. For every 1m3 of wood in a building, 1 tonne of carbon gases (CO2) is captured, which is good for the planet and for future generations. The pedigree of wood has long been established, and Monnet-Sève Sougy now proposes modern timber products, with proven properties of durability, structural resistance, robustness, transformed by sawing, drying and planing.
To illustrate its environmental commitments, Monnet-Sève Sougy is proud to share this picture of the transportation of our "by-products". River transportation between Villefranche Sur Saône and Tarascon of 2,000 tonnes of wood chips to be turned into pulp. In this example, the wood chips are 100% recycled and the river transport method saves 80 x 550km round trips by HGV, i.e. a total of 44,000km: more than the circumference of our planet!!
Wood products trap carbon
Wood is a perfect ally in the fight against global warming. Using wood products helps fight the greenhouse effect.
There are several reasons for this:
Key figures :
1m3 of wood = 1 tonne CO2 absorbed
A construction with a wood structure uses:
If you like wood and want to act in a reasonable and sustainable manner to support France while getting pleasure out of it too, we can help: use Bois de France timber!
Monnet-Sève Sougy is very proud of only using Bois de France, and it is only natural that we should receive the new eco-responsible « Bois De France » label, developed by FNB (Fédération Nationale du Bois)
In France, using Bois de France timber for your construction, renovation and extension projects is an ecologically responsible action with many other benefits.
Below, you will find a list of the major advantages of Bois de France timber, but there are many others too, as we are regularly informed by our customers following their own experiences…
In the end, what could be more logical in both ecological AND environmental terms than building in France with Bois de France timber, processed and transformed in France?
With Monnet-Sève Sougy, let’s build the future from Bois de France timber!
