I work for a non-profit design firm and we’re partnering with the University of Rwanda on an embodied carbon research project. There are 3 main activities:
- benchmarking study to identify building embodied carbon baseline and identify carbon hotpots
- identify appropriate material coefficients that can be used locally
- create guidelines for built environment professionals to measure and reduce embodied carbon
We’re starting to write the methodology for the benchmarking study. Is anyone aware of any embodied carbon benchmarking studies that have been performed, like the CLF one, that would be good to consider before starting the project?
If anyone is interested in learning more about the project and feels like they could offer insights before we start then I’d be interested in connecting.
