Full description

This guide, produced in conjunction with the University of Bath, looks at why it is necessary to account for the embodied carbon in construction. Its purpose is to provide the construction industry with necessary data and then present the raw data in a way that is readily usable in calculations. To access the raw data please visit the The Inventory of Carbon and Energy (ICE)  The guide will also inform the industry how to incorporate assessment of embodied carbon into the design process in order to make informed choices about the materials used.

Dr Phillip Lee, Member of Parliament for Bracknell and Member of the Select Committee for Energy and Climate Change 2010 comments:

"The report provides a lot of data and points you to lots more. It also demonstrates some of the complexities of making embodied carbon assessments. But just because the matter is complex we cannot ignore it. European legislation on carbon is tightening all the time: we must have a knowledgeable industry in the UK who are on top of the issues".

This publication is also available as part of the Carbon and Cost Analysis Set (CC1/11)
