Around 50% of carbon emissions from new build housing is caused by the building materials, the build process, maintenance and end of life – known as the Embodied Carbon emissions. These carbon emissions fall largely outside the scope of current regulation.

Woodknowledge Wales and ASBP are inviting you to the official launch of their new Embodied Carbon guide for social housing developers, their design teams, contractors and suppliers. Written by Jane Anderson ((ConstructionLCA) and Katherine Adams (ASBP), it provides information on how to procure and undertake an Embodied Carbon assessment, what benchmarks can be set, tools that can be used and how Embodied Carbon can be reduced. Examples show how others have tackled Embodied Carbon within their organisations and projects, with a focus on housing.
