Materials matter: Bill Gates explains the importance of embodied carbon
This is a great short video on the importance of reducing the emissions from the manufacturing sector that highlights the need for the building sector to take action. Send the link to your network. It’s a quick and easy introduction to a topic that can seem opaque.
What is Embodied Carbon in Buildings?
This video explains upfront embodied carbon emissions from buildings, and shows how material selection can make the difference between a building with a huge carbon footprint, or a building that is actually a net carbon sink.
