How to Approach Embodied Carbon Reduction On Your Project

Designing for Embodied Carbon Reduction

Between 39%-80% of a building’s total carbon footprint is a result of the embodied carbon from building materials. If evaluated early in the design phase, 80% of a building’s embodied carbon can be reduced.

That's why we've created this eBook to provide an overview of how to choose which embodied carbon values to use and the typical range of values to be aware of when designing for embodied carbon reduction.

Key points include:
  • Why you should calculate embodied carbon in the early stages
  • How to find embodied carbon values
  • Which embodied carbon values are most important
  • Typical embodied carbon values to look for.
