Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for Low Carbon Construction

This project provides guidance to industry professionals looking to integrate carbon into life cycle based decision making through the creation of an environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) practice guide and establishment of embodied carbon benchmarks of buildings.

This practice guide will focus on aiding carbon reduction in the building construction sector (both new construction and renovation) through the use of whole building LCA. The guide will integrate concurrent work developed by others into one common practice guide document.

The Charles Pankow Foundation wishes to acknowledge additional financial support for this project from Skanska and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality.
