ARUP to perform whole building carbon LCAs for all future projects

Hats off to Arup!

This is the first actual measurable goal I’ve seen come out of COP26 from our industry. ARUP is a direct competitor of ours, but I am very happy to see them make this commitment.

Maybe I am cynical, but seeing all these major architecture firms committing to “zero carbon” is so thin when we all know for a fact that they are neither commissioning nor performing wbLCAs on their projects. We all know the phrase, “you cannot improve what you do not measure”…
