I am currently dealing with the question whether one can also assign a value concept to embodied carbon or whether there are studies on this. The amount of embodied carbon can be determined relatively well over the life cycle, but what about a possible monetization? Operational carbon can be monetized very well, but what about embodied carbon? The German real estate valuation procedures hardly give any possibility to include possible sustainability aspects in the valuation.
I am of the opinion that a monetary understanding of the emissions could certainly contribute to giving an incentive for ecologically sustainable building.
I would be very interested in your thoughts on this topic.
