Assessing the Carbon-Related Impacts and Benefits of Timber in Construction
This paper explains how to account for carbon in timber buildings and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) by rigorously applying the latest European Standards and the RICS Professional Statement on Whole Life Carbon Assessment in the built environment.
This will prove useful for architects, engineers, clients, and contractors when assessing the embodied carbon associated with buildings and other structures, as well as product manufacturers and suppliers in demonstrating the carbon impact of their products.
This paper seeks to help clarify how the standards require us to account for embodied carbon within timber buildings and structures so we can better understand, measure, and address these emissions in order to reduce their environmental impact.
