    jane anderson's comment 29 October, 2012 9:27 am

    I would not agree with Sarah Williamson that there is not currently certified embodied carbon for construction materials. Considerable numbers of independent, third party verified EPD are available for a wide range of construction products - these will include embodied carbon data, often called as labelled Global Warming Potential or Climate Change, and calculated using an agreed methodology. Please see page 15 of the CPA’s recent publication which I co-wrote (http://www.constructionproducts.org.uk/fileadmin/client/cpa/documents/Sustainability/Embodied_Impacts_brochure_small_V9.pdf) for relevant links to EPD programs.
