Why You Need to Know about Timber and Carbon?

Timber is the ultimate low carbon material.  However, if we are to meet our net zero carbon commitments, it will be required in ever increasing quantities to build the low carbon structures of the future. To ensure a project’s carbon targets are met, both embodied and operational carbon must be measured to produce a whole life carbon assessment. There are approved standards that need to be followed when assessing the whole life carbon impact of an asset, and particular rules within these standards to be followed where timber elements are included. In order to meet growing demands for timber in construction, we also need to make the very best use of this valuable resource by following circular economy design principles.

By attending this webinar, you will learn the key principles of assessing timber within a whole life carbon assessment and the circular economy design principles that can be used.
