2 November 2021

Embodied carbon has traditionally been overlooked as a cause of emissions in the built environment. While an inefficient building can be renovated and improved to reduce future in-use emissions, the clock cannot be turned back on embodied carbon. What is required is a whole life approach to decarbonisation. How can this be best achieved and what are the challenges that need to be overcome?
