Embodied carbon 101

Building Tomorrow Episode 3

Published February 17, 2023

As materials and construction account for 11 percent of global carbon emissions, embodied carbon—the emissions arising from the manufacturing, transportation, installation, maintenance, and disposal of building materials—will play a key role in our path to deep decarbonization of our built environment.
