World Green Building Council publishes report - ‘Bringing Embodied Carbon Upfront’

The Report recommends coordinated action by the building and construction sector to tackle embodied carbon. The manufacturing, transportation, construction and end of life phases of all built assets – buildings and infrastructure – are responsible for 11% of carbon emission into the atmosphere.  It sets a vision of 40% less embodied carbon for new infrastructure and building and renovations by 2030.
