How do we reduce embodied carbon?
  • If you’re a product manufacturer, seek out ways to source, produce and transport materials more sustainably.
  • If you’re responsible for designing buildings, consider designing with sustainability in mind to enhance resource efficiency and reduce harmful emissions to protect the environment.
  • If you’re responsible for the construction process of a building, promote sustainable construction practices and ideally use sustainably sourced, locally available materials to reduce construction site and transport emissions.
  • Promote deconstruction as opposed to demolition and seek to reuse and recycle as many materials as possible to close the loop, saving precious resources.
