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
13:10 A short history of the ICE Database, why use it, details on future updates and new embodied carbon building benchmarks
– Craig Jones, Director, Circular Ecology
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?
  • How is the need for digital data affecting those within industry?
  • Is carbon really all we need?
