    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 ...
  • Embodied carbon emissions of buildings : a case study of an apartment building in the UK. 

    Fernando, Nirodha Gayani; Ekundayo, Damilola; Victoria, Michele Florencia (CIOB (ORGANISERS), 2018-06-29)
    FERNANDO, N.G., EKUNDAYO, D.O. and VICTORIA, M.F. 2018. Embodied carbon emissions of buildings : a case study of an apartment building in the UK. Presented at the 7th World construction symposium 2018: built asset sustainability; rethinking design, construction and operations, 29 June - 01 July 2018, Colombo, Sri Lanka.
    The UK government has set a target to significantly reduce UK greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. 47% of all UK CO2 emissions are linked to the construction and operation of the built environment. Buildings emit two types ...
