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