Cross-industry Action on Embodied Carbon

Posted: 14th April 2023

CIC has put online 3 new climate action briefings which cover ‘Cross-industry Action on Embodied Carbon’, ‘How IStructE is taking action on embodied Carbon’ and ‘Progress on the Built Environment Carbon Database’.

The videos are courtesy of Workstream 4 of 'Carbon Zero: the professional institutions’ climate action plan’, which covers resource use and embodied carbon and is led by the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE).

They include an update on the Built Environment Carbon Database which is envisioned to be the main source of carbon estimating and benchmarking for the UK construction sector, plus a look at what the construction industry has been doing to reduce whole-life and embodied carbon emissions.

The videos last between 7 and 12 minutes and can be found through the links below and on the Construction Industry Council YouTube channel.
