Tuesday 19 de July del 2022
Arauco is a global company with a presence on five continents, reaching more than 4,300 customers around the world. Its purpose is to create products that improve people’s lives through the integral and sustainable use of renewable forest resources: in the paper, apparel, construction, packaging, furniture and energy industries. In their 50 years of experience, they have placed sustainability as the fundamental value of their work. Their operational management is directly related to the ecosystems in which we are present, so they are concerned with implementing the best environmental and social practices. This has allowed them to obtain important achievements, one of the most relevant being that in 2020, to be certified as the first forestry company in the world to be carbon neutral. Today they present the firm conviction that wood is the key material to advance towards sustainable architecture and construction, thus contributing to the integral development of the country. This resource has multiple benefits that make it the only natural material that can be sustainably produced for large-scale use in construction, and it emerges as the most innovative option with great prospects for increasing productivity. “Arauco is one of the world’s leading producers of wood, and in this context, we want to participate in the transition to sustainable architecture and construction. It is for this reason that in recent years we have innovated and applied modern systems to its processing to obtain new construction solutions that improve people’s living conditions”, said the corporation. An example of this is the antimicrobial copper technology applied to the surface of the various designs of Vesto melamine or the impulse given to its line of products for wood engineering. “As part of the forestry industry, we know that we have an important role in the responsible management of forests and the sustainable development of the timber industry, which undoubtedly contributes to Chile becoming a cleaner country, low in emissions and resilient to climate change”, they added. Their commitment to the use of wood also seeks to solve a major problem, which is the housing deficit that exists and is expected to increase in the coming years. Currently, in Chile there is a housing deficit of around 650,000 units and, according to a United Nations study, by 2030 new housing will be required for 3 billion people in the world. A concrete alternative to meet this demand is this renewable resource.
