The Key to Reducing the Embodied Carbon Emissions through Digital Data Transparency

Reducing embodied carbon emissions is one of the most urgent opportunities we have today in reducing the footprint of our built spaces as building materials manufacturing makes up 11% of total GHG emissions annually.The Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3) is a free and easy to use tool that allows owners, green building certification programs and policymakers to assess supply chain data in order to create EPD requirements, and set embodied carbon limits and reductions, at the construction material and project scale. Stacy Smedley, Executive Director of Building Transparency, will explain the urgent need to reduce the embodied carbon emissions of our building materials and products, the breakthrough represented by this open source tool, and how EC3 supports low-carbon material procurement.
