Embodied Carbon

The built environment is a substantial contributor to Global Warming Potential (GWP) through both the energy and fossil fuels required to operate buildings as well as the embodied energy and carbon of all the materials needed to construct it. Our research will cover an introduction to embodied carbon and life cycle assessment (LCA), and will investigate workflow methods for conducting LCAs with tools such as Tally.
