Abstract

Cork is adopted to passivate green buildings by the mean of cork made panels for insulation and then to build up post carbon city [1–12]. World is facing an incumbent lethal ecological disaster caused by global warming which is the last final ring in responsibility chain originated by the fossil energy over consumption and burning in contemporary world. Building management, civilian sectors and construction activities share an astonishing large percentage, close to 50%, of total world consumption of energy from fossil sources. It is mainly because of the excessive inefficiency of buildings, notably the most modern and recent ones. Sugherete (cork oak woods and forests) are shifting from abandoned and meaningless wood lands in geo strategic resources needed to implement the solution to climate change planetary problem id est the Sustainability Strategy. Consequently, sugherete shall be detected, analyzed and treasured. A Case Study have been performed collecting on the field data concerning the sughereta named Angitola in the territory of Pizzo town (in the region of Calabria, the Southernmost of continental Italy; province of Vibo Valentia) whose area have been estimate at about 125 hectares. This information is important for future valuation of potential CO2% sequestration as well as of cork bark retractable from the forest.
