«BambooHUB provides nature-based and innovative solutions for sustainable development»
Bamboo is the most sustainable material on the planet thanks to its rapid growth (up to a meter per day) and enormous carbon sequestration capacity, superior to any other plant species. Its exceptional resistance, combined with flexibility, makes bamboo an excellent choice for any constructive use. Besides, every day arouses more interest among those who prefer nature-based solutions and value bamboo’s unique beauty.
In BambooHUB, we firmly believe it is the material of the future. By promoting its use, we will contribute to improving our clients’ quality of life and all citizens in general, creating healthier habitats for them.
Due to new treatment methods and the combination with engineering, more ambitious long-term projects are possible and large scale sustainable business, based on the circular economy.
On the other hand, bamboo can replace many materials with high carbon emissions, such as PVC, steel, and concrete, also reducing pressure on the use of forest timber resources. Indeed, bamboo products can have a low or even negative carbon footprint across their lifecycle.
In conclusion, bamboo is an outstanding tool to fight global climate change and contributes to the achievement of SDGs, Agenda 2030, and the Paris Agreement.
