The Building and Construction sector is responsible for 38% of Global CO2 Emissions. Understanding the Whole Life Cycle of buildings is Essential to Tackle their Climate Impacts.
The UN’s Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction shows that the buildings and construction sector is responsible for 38% of global CO2 emissions.
A report by the Royal Academy of Engineering drew attention to the environmental costs that the industry incurs and possible ways to address them.
Central to this new way of thinking about construction is what architects and developers call a whole-life carbon approach.
The whole-life approach considers a building’s entire life cycle, from construction, occupation and renovation to repair, demolition and disposal.
In a typical UK housing block, emissions attributable to construction and maintenance account for 51% of the building’s total carbon emissions. Hotels construction can account for up to 70% of its life cycle emissions.
TLC Harmony have repositioned to address the largest harm impacts associated with travel and tourism; Guest travel and embodied (construction) carbon. They represent the vast majority of GHG emissions in our sector.
For that We have engaged one of the worlds leading construction technologists to assist developers reduce their carbon emissions, which happily can also drive down their building costs. A win for the planet and a win for their pockets.
