Whole life carbon is embodied and operational carbon taken together. It measures the Global Warming Potential (GWP) contributions of a building along its life cycle from ‘cradle’ (the extraction of raw materials that are used to construct the building) through to the ‘grave’. EU policy is starting to address whole life carbon in buildings and a number of different actors within the built environment sector are setting out roadmaps and quantified strategies.
Don’t miss the European Commission’s upcoming webinar on assessing the whole life carbon performance of buildings using Level(s).
Level(s) is the European common language for sustainable buildings, and this is a perfect opportunity to gain an understanding of:
- The importance of Level(s) in the context of recent EU policy developments related to whole life carbon.
- How the Level(s) indicator for assessing whole life carbon can be used at each stage of a building’s life cycle (from design, to construction to end-of-life).
PLUS: the webinar will feature presentations by built environment professionals who will explain the importance of Level(s) for the whole life carbon assessment of buildings in their contexts.
Who should attend?
- Professionals involved in the design, planning, financing, execution of building projects.
- Representatives of associations, agencies, cities and public authorities with responsibility for the built-environment (building/construction, real estate etc.).
- Organisations, of all kinds, focused on the decarbonisation of buildings.
