Why it matters

By choosing and/or specifying low carbon materials you are supporting the transition to low carbon. As buildings become more energy efficient and electricity becomes less carbon-intense, the carbon embodied within the materials of the building becomes more important to reduce.


Did you know?

Embodied emissions make up a large part of the overall carbon footprint of the Australian construction sector. Carbon-intensive materials like cement, concrete, plasterboard, limestone, brick, and ceramics are responsible for around 40% of embodied emissions from construction.
