A webinar to launch a study for supporting the development of the EU Roadmap for the reduction of whole life carbon of buildings

Recently, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for the Environment (DG ENV) commissioned a study aimed at supporting the development of an EU-wide whole life carbon Roadmap, outlining how all building-related emissions can be mitigated by 2050.

The study, which is conducted by a consortium led by Ramboll in collaboration with KU Leuven and Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE), will:

  • establish a baseline for embodied carbon emissions of buildings across European regions,
  • set out how the levels of embodied carbon for a representative selection of building types and typologies can be expected to evolve by 2050,
  • set out the trajectory towards climate objectives for operational carbon in various scenarios, and
  • identify and assess the impact of whole life carbon emissions reduction solutions.

The study, which will rely on the collaboration of stakeholders within the building and construction ecosystem, includes a broad stakeholder engagement programme that foresees the consultation of relevant actors at different stages of the project.

To learn more about the study, join the kick-off webinar on 8 March 2022, from 15:00 to 16:15 CET. To register, use this link.
