The World Green Building Council has launched the EU Policy Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for buildings as part of the #BuildingLife project.
We are facing a climate emergency, and the construction sector produces around 36% of total European carbon emissions. This is mainly due to our aging and inefficient urban fabric, and the urgent need for the construction industry to modernise.
With the adoption of energy efficiency measures, it is expected that most efficient buildings will end up accumulating more embodied carbon emissions over their lifetime than their corresponding operational carbon emissions. This can be seen in cases C, B and A below. This scenario puts in context the growing importance of the correct calculation of embodied carbon of buildings.

Bryden Wood supports the adoption of measures to achieve the following objectives defined in the roadmap:
From a design viewpoint this requires:
