QB Corporation helps reduce CO2 emissions in New York City

QB Corporation is proud to offer environmentally friendly mass timber products that provide substantial ecological benefits as construction materials. We’re delighted to supply our high-quality glulam beams and columns for New York’s first six-story, fourteen-unit mass-timber condominium building.

The construction industry is a significant contributor to global carbon emissions, responsible for nearly 40% of these emissions and an important factor in climate change. The production of construction materials alone accounts for approximately 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions. For instance, producing one ton of cement releases about one ton of carbon dioxide, the most prevalent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere.

Mass timber derived from wood serves as a sustainable building material and acts as a carbon sink throughout its life cycle, even capturing additional carbon. Research has shown that a hybrid, mid-rise mass timber commercial building can reduce global warming potential by 15-26%, depending on its design.
