Decarbonizing construction: Guidance for investors and developers to reduce embodied carbon

Building Materials, Stakeholder Engagement

The WBCSD and One Click LCA report provides a resource to companies who want to set requirements for embodied carbon reductions in projects they finance and develop in a performance-based way. It also references a selection of emerging national regulations focusing on embodied carbon. And it provides examples of how to include circular solutions in the design phase of projects, which is an important economic, environmental and social opportunity to catalyze innovation and new business models to reduce embodied carbon. We encourage investors, developers, asset managers, lenders and tenants to use this resource to set requirements for carbon performance and pursue sustainability strategies in the earliest phases of project planning and development.
