Carbon Footprint

It is important to understand the effect of the entire lifecycle of a project.

Carbon Footprint Studies can take into account the carbon footprint of the whole project by calculating the amount of carbon dioxide produced at each stage:

  • The carbon dioxide generated during construction, including travel to and from the site by construction workers and the embodied carbon dioxide of materials used for construction such as clay or PVC pipe work
  • The carbon dioxide generated by the building in its everyday use, as a result of energy usage for lighting, hot water, heating etc
  • The carbon dioxide generated during decommissioning

The Benefits

As well as benefiting the environment and consumers, Carbon Footprint Studies will benefit developers:

  • The study will enable developers to compare the sustainability of different designs and materials for the whole project
  • Carbon Footprint Studies can be incorporated into project specific Waste Management Plans
  • Overall the study offers a standout badge of environmental stability both in the way a development has been constructed and its ongoing environmental impact
