What you need to know about embodied carbon

Embodied carbon, in the context of buildings, refers to emissions associated with the materials extracted for construction, transportation, manufacturing, on-site construction, as well as decommissioning (including demolition, recycling, and landfill).

“Embodied carbon emissions account for up to 75% of a building’s total emissions over its lifespan.”
