The non-profit initiative Holz v Hier (HVH) or Low Carbon Timber (LCT) wants to contribute to a present and future in which comprehensive conservation of energy, resources, water, climate and biodiversity are fundamental maxims of economic and social action.
The initiative wants to contribute by information and alternative action offers to the fact that climatic, biodiversity, energy ,water and resources careful products from the outset, as well as genuine lasting acting of all market participants in as short as possible material cycles with wood products and other nature products is increasingly converted. HVH / LCT provides the platform for communication, the community for like-minded people, and the tools for practical and economical implementation of optimally sustainable wood products.
The reason for the foundation and development was anger and sadness about the often senseless, wasteful and unnecessary destruction of the basis of all our lives. Combined with the desire to show that the protection of climate, environment and resources is essential for society and economy and not a freestyle for fat years. Moreover, the conviction that this can only be achieved in cooperation between business, society and environmental protection. The personal experience that “the economy” is not heartlessly anonymous, but that especially in owner-managed companies, it is mostly people who are in charge, who think about the future, who think for their regions and who care about the environment, simply who act with heart and mind, to the best of their knowledge and conscience, in responsibility, has strengthened us in our approach. In addition, a growing concern about the growing opacity of processes in an increasingly globalized economy and increasingly global supply chains, as a driver of rampant resource consumption, was crucial. Holz von Hier (HVH) or European Low Carbon Tomber (LCT) was founded out of genuine commitment and is therefore also looking for the commitment of companies and partners.
