Table 2 Matrix for assessing forestry and wood products industries’ impact on the CO 2 balance (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany for the period from 2005 to 2010)

From: A multi-tiered approach for assessing the forestry and wood products industries’ impact on the carbon balance

  Category of emission reduction/stock/sink TOTAL
Approaches for assessing forestry and wood products industries’ impact on the CO 2 balance (North Rhine-Westphalia, NRW) Forest sink HWP sink Fuel substitution Material substitution  
Changes in forest carbon stock Changes in HWP carbon stock CO2 impact of wood fuel CO2 impact of wood product usage  
[Mt CO 2 ] [Mt CO 2 ] [Mt CO 2 ] [Mt CO 2 ] [Mt CO 2 ]
How do the forestry and wood product industries in NRW impact the CO 2 balance in NRW (and the global CO 2 balance)? Forest in NRW HWP from forests in NRW All wood used as fuel in NRW All wood processed/manufactured in NRW  
Approach I: Kyoto Protocol-oriented approach (–4) –1.1 –5.0 –7.9 –18.0
How do the forest and consumers in NRW impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest in NRW All HWP used in NRW All wood used as fuel in NRW All HWP used in NRW  
Approach II: Consumer-oriented approach (–4) –3.3 –5.0 –9.1 –21.4
How do the forest and the harvested wood products from NRW impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest in NRW HWP from forests in NRW Wood from NRW used as fuel (of which ca. 0.5 Mt is not statistically recorded as harvested wood) HWP from forests in NRW  
Approach III: Value-creation approach (–4) –1.1 –2.5 –3.6 –11.2
