Thank you, Jane Anderson!
We all know that our resource consumption and our carbon emissions are significantly influenced by the building sector. If the agreed European political goals on carbon reduction are to be kept, the potential for mitigation in the building sector should be activated better, soon. Basis for any effective action is transparency: measurability is key for understanding the impacts, when choosing the right measures to improve.
We support building Life-cycle assessments (LCA) as best methodology for correctly assessing the "carbon impact" (as well as use of resources) of buildings and construction products correctly. Building LCA are well established, such as EPD as the best format for the required product data for any life-cycle assessment on building level.
With this newsletter, Jane Anderson provides insights about the world of building rating schemes and their methods to consider building LCA. Thank you for all your efforts and for sharing your knowledge with us, Jane!
