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

  Category of emission reduction/stock/sink
Approaches for assessing the forestry and wood products industries’ impact on the CO 2 balance (Area x) 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 ]
How do the forestry and wood product industries in Area x impact the CO 2 balance in Area x (and the global CO 2 balance)? Forest Area x HWP from Forest Area x All wood used as fuel in Area x All wood processed/manufactured in Area x
Approach I: Kyoto Protocol-oriented approach I II IV VI
How do the forest and consumers in Area x impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest Area x All HWP used in Area x All wood used as fuel in Area x All HWP used in Area x
Approach II: Consumer-oriented approach I III IV VII
How do the forest and the harvested wood products from Area x impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest Area x HWP from Forest Area x Wood from Area x used as fuel HWP from Forest Area x
Approach III: Value-creation approach I II V VIII
