Delivering net zero carbon: translating targets into actions
Achieving net zero carbon by 2050 is a world challenge. Alan Fogarty, Sustainability Partner, reviews the impact this will have on building design, facades and the integration of systems. Qian Li, Embodied Carbon specialist, explores the choice of materials in buildings to minimise the whole life cycle carbon. Madlen Jannaschk, ESD, summarises the choices available for offsetting residual energy after both the operational and embodied energy has been minimised.
