    Buildings emit two types of carbon (and greenhouse gases) namely Operational Carbon (OC) and Embodied Carbon (EC). Operational carbon is regulated in the UK as it contributed up to 70-80% of total emissions. On the other ...

Proceedings of the 31st annual Association of Researchers in Construction Management confernce (ARCOM), 7-9 September 2015, Lincoln, UK. Lincoln: ARCOM [online], pages 267-276. Available from: http://www.arcom.ac.uk/-docs/proceedings/ff96343816e3a48d472a039e584fb584.pdf
    The focus of carbon management has shifted from operational carbon towards Embodied Carbon (EC) as a result of zero carbon agenda. Even though effort is made to quantify EC in detail design stage and choose the best solution ...
