Hines Embodied Carbon Reduction Guide

Carbon, Design, Energy Targets, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

This guide was developed by Hines and Magnusson Klemencic Associates (MKA) to provide an overview of embodied carbon for building designers, contractors, and other building professionals. The guide describes how to measure the embodied carbon of materials and how to conduct a whole building life cycle assessment (WBLCA), as well as what strategies to use to reduce embodied carbon in various building systems.
