The construction industry has been identified as one of the major contributors to environmental pollution, now focusing widely on the sustainable construction aspects. One aspect in today’s spotlight is carbon accounting.
Carbon accounting is the process undertaken to measure the amounts of carbon dioxide equivalent emitted by an entity. As financial accounting measures financial performance, carbon accounting provides a measure of the environmental performance of any venture.
With increasing energy efficiency in upcoming buildings, the relative importance of operational carbon emissions and energy consumption during other life cycle stages of projects are shifted to ’embodied carbon’, which refers to carbon emissions created in the manufacture of the materials used, their transportation, the construction activities themselves and the eventual demolition and disposal.
