UNDERSTANDING BUILDING MATERIAL SELECTION: How to use transparent environmental reporting to assess the impact of materials over a project’s life


  • Thursday October 22 – 1PM


OVERVIEW: The twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are a serious issue of our time. Globally, buildings and construction play a major part, accounting for nearly 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats. In this CPD we look at how to make informed choices to reduce embodied carbon in your projects, how best to use data to interpret the data.



After completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand how to calculate Embodied Carbon in Buildings
  • How to use Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) for decision making
  • Make sense of product declarations and certifications
  • Use Building Rating Tools to measure embodied carbon
  • Where to find the information that will help you assess


We also have CPD content on the following topics:

  • Safe and Enduring Facades that meet Design Ambition
  • Managing Weather and Condensation

Please get in touch if you are interested in having a presentation to your team.
