You're ready to commit to net zero carbon and want to reduce your company’s carbon footprint to play your part in the fight against climate change. But where do you start?

5 quick wins to tackle Embodied Carbon

Operational carbon emissions, those released during use over a building's lifetime, have been a priority for carbon reduction targets to date. However, to deliver net zero buildings, the same level of focus  is needed to tackle embodied carbon emissions, those released during the construction of a building's elements.

We've put together 5 quick win solutions that you can start to implement immediately to tackle your embodied carbon and show you are committed to net zero.
