The Dutch trade magazine Houtwereld published an article about the environmental impact of piling, as presented by the Royal Association of Dutch Timber companies and FSC® the Netherlands.

Steel piling causes the highest environmentel impact: up to 140 times higher than piling made of certified timber.
