EMBODIED CARBON 101

Why consider this training?

  • Learn about embodied carbon and life cycle assessment of the global warming potential associated with your building designs.
  • Life Cycle Assessment is due to become an EU regulatory requirement in the coming years as the draft EPBD (Energy Performance of Buildings Directive) schedules it as mandatory for buildings over 1,000m2 in 2027 and all buildings by 2030.
  • The Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Local Government and Heritage has recommended that a Whole Life Carbon assessment should be a requirement as part of the planning permission process.
  • Many building certification schemes requiring carbon and life cycle analysis Learn to understand where the hotspots are in the lifecycle of a building in order to address them.
