One last recent document, produced by Builders for Climate Action and the City of Nelson, BC. This is a “Material Carbon Emissions Guide” that Nelson is providing to designers, builders, retailers and the public in their region. It shows comparative A1-A3 emissions for the material categories that were found to be most impactful in our study of 34 as-built homes in the region. The results come from EPDs as calculated by the MCE2 tool from Natural Resources Canada.
