Webinar: The ICE Database, embodied carbon benchmarks & more!

Date: Thursday 26th November 2020 Timings: 13:00 - 14:30

Please join us on Thursday 26th November, 13:00-14:30 for an insightful webinar with ICE Database creator Dr. Craig Jones, Circular Ecology and LCA guru Jane Anderson.

The ICE (Inventory of Carbon & Energy) Database is one of the most comprehensive embodied carbon databases for building materials and provides the foundation for a number of carbon reduction design tools including ECCOLab and H\B:ERT.

Hear from Craig on the latest ICE database developments, an embodied carbon benchmarking project for Scottish Futures Trust, plus valuable inputs from Jane on embodied carbon data for concrete, and a conversation about how the industry can move forward with embodied carbon.

Speakers

New embodied carbon building benchmarks!

We’re delighted that Craig will also be discussing the findings of a project with the Scottish Futures Trust that has culminated in vital new embodied carbon benchmarks for common building types. The study consisted of a systematic review of over 1,000 embodied carbon case studies which were screened for method, boundaries, transparency and consistency. We look forward to hearing more!

Programme

13:00 Welcome from the ASBP – Simon Corbey, Director, ASBP

13:45 An overview of Jane’s new research paper with Dr Alice Moncaster – ‘Embodied carbon of concrete in buildings: Analysis of published EPD’ – Jane Anderson, Director, ConstructionLCA
14:00 Facilitated conversation with Craig and Jane, plus audience Q&A

  • How do we train up new people so that we can deal with the increase in demand for embodied carbon assessments?
  • What is the role of Environmental Product Declarations?
