Cross-laminated timber is one of the environmentally friendly materials that you can consider. As is known, infrastructure development is one of the aspects that affect economic growth in Indonesia. Unfortunately, development is usually not free from carbon footprints that have the potential to cause pollution and even damage the earth.

In addition, the concrete material that is often used in buildings has a pretty bad effect on the environment, because the material is difficult to decompose. However, the construction of environmentally friendly materials, such as cross-laminated timber, is one solution to overcome this.

Kayu Lapis Indonesia recommends building materials made from wood which is much more environmentally friendly. This is because these materials produce little greenhouse gas emissions and are able to bind carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Therefore, the potential for global warming can be reduced in such a way as to reach 26.5%. The greenhouse effect can be prevented, so that the ozone layer is not more hollow. Thus, the side effects of diseases such as skin cancer can be prevented.
