Recent wildfires and other forest health challenges highlight the need to collaborate on innovative solutions that invest in technology within the built environment that supports more resilient forests and climate mitigation strategies.
This event focused on highlighting leadership in the mass timber sector and how the sector supports federal, state, and private natural resource management goals. The ultimate goal is to catalyze relationships and a higher level of investment in mass timber construction in the U.S. as a strategy to support corporate sustainability goals.
This virtual event also addressed how investors and corporations can get involved, including tackling bottlenecks within the mass timber industry such as education, codes, and financing.
Speakers included USDA Deputy Secretary Dr. Jewel Bronaugh, USDA Forest Service Chief Randy Moore, and representatives from Microsoft, Walmart, the Softwood Lumber Board, WoodWorks. The event was hosted by Dovetail Partners.
