ACAN launches embodied carbon regulation campaign
The report — entitled The Carbon Footprint of Construction: the case for regulating embodied carbon in construction to significantly address the impact of the industry on the climate — describes the impact of embodied carbon emissions and makes a comprehensive case for regulation. It is the result of an industry consultation process, a detailed review of the literature, interviews with industry experts, campaign workshops and input from many contributors.
ACAN is a voluntary network of people involved in architecture and the built environment professions. It has three aims … “rapid decarbonisation of the built environment, ecological regeneration through the immediate adoption of regenerative and ecological principles, and cultural transformation of the profession.” For more information about the the Embodied Carbon Campaign and ACAN’s work, visit architectscan.org
