Embodied Carbon, The Whole Picture

Accurate measurement and reporting of embodied carbon is becoming critical to ensuring real progress towards Net Zero Carbon goals. This webinar recording offers a wealth of knowledge and practical ideas to inform your approach to embodied carbon. Our experts provide a comprehensive overview of its fundamentals and importance, as well as how it must be addressed at both the development- and fund-level, and how to integrate it into an ESG strategy. The session also considered embodied carbon in the context of notable frameworks, such as the UKGBC and SBTi, as well as its inclusion in existing and emerging European regulations.

Embodied Carbon, The Whole Picture: A fund manager and development manager’s guide to embodied carbon.

The building sector contributes to 39% of global carbon emissions, with 28% attributable to the operation of buildings (ie. operational carbon) and 11% to the materials and construction processes (ie. embodied carbon). With the increasingly successful reduction of operational carbon, embodied carbon is growing in importance as a proportion of a building’s total emissions. Accurate measurement and reporting of embodied carbon is therefore becoming critical to ensuring real progress towards net zero carbon goals. To accomplish both short- and long-term climate commitments, whether at asset- or portfolio-level, embodied carbon must be addressed.
