Wood Luxembourg’s forests cover more than one third of the territory and produce a sustainable product par excellence: wood. Every year, the total forest produces some 760,000m³ of wood, of which on average some 500,000m³ is exploited by man. The Luxembourg forest as a whole is managed in a sustainable manner, meaning that no more wood is taken than is replaced. The wood sector in Luxembourg Once the tree is cut, the wood circulates along an entire chain of players within the wood sector. We can differentiate several industries within this sector: Timber harvesting Sawmills Wood panel industry Paper industry Wood energy Wood furniture Wood construction It is estimated that there are about 1,500 wood sector companies employing about 11,000 people in the Grand Duchy. Their activities generate a wide range of "green jobs". Wood Cluster The Luxembourg Wood Cluster, managed by Luxinnovation, was created in 2017 for the wood producing and processing industry in Luxembourg. It operates as an exchange platform for all players in the sector. The Wood Cluster’s prime goal is the creation and development of new business opportunities thereby enhancing the use of this excellent sustainable material at the local and regional level. It fosters the links between stakeholders by offering its members various actions to boost the ‘wood’ sector and to ensure the sustainability and competitiveness of affiliate companies.
