Decarbonizing construction – Guidance for investors and developers to reduce embodied carbon
This report provides embodied carbon reduction guidance and tools for project owners and project teams, such as investors, developers, owner-operators and large tenants, as well as the design teams and contractors working with them.
It condenses over 50 leading embodied carbon reduction practices (requirements) across all project life-cycle phases into a single report. We have grouped each measure into one of the following five categories.
1. Create a carbon policy that sets out consistent requirements for all projects to follow.
2. Set targets and transparency requirements for projects to meet across all their phases. Prioritize circularity – that is, less new building and more reuse and refurbishment.
4. Design optimization to use less material and to choose materials with a low carbon footprint.
5. Low-carbon procurement to ensure acquisition of materials with a low carbon footprint.
