Ministry for Business Innovation & Employment – Building for Climate Change Initiative. The problem we’re facing - The building and construction sector is a large contributor to greenhouse gas emissions from producing materials, constructing buildings and the energy used in buildings.
If New Zealand is to reach its climate change goals, including net zero carbon by 2050, the building and construction sector must play a major part in this.
The Tallwood Institute has released a case study on Embodied & Biogenic Carbon using a whole building life cycle assessment.
This series highlights five whole building life cycle assessments (WBLCAs) of buildings incorporating the building material known as cross-laminated timber (CLT) into some or all of their structure, using a primary cradle-to-grave system boundary. This case study series will serve as an educational resource for academics, professionals,and CLT project stakeholders.
Whole building life cycle assessment (WBLCA) is a method to quantify and evaluate the environmental impacts associated with a building’s life cycle.
