Mission Statement

The buildings focus group will focus on advancing our understanding of how to best quantify and reduce total life cycle carbon emissions at the building scale with an emphasis on understanding and reducing embodied carbon.


  • Identify practitioners, researchers and policymakers who are evaluating embodied carbon/conducting Life Cycle Assessments at the building scale
  • Understand the current state of knowledge – what is being done and what projects are underway (update each other)
  • Work together to identify current needs/outline project the task force could undertake
  • Comment and contribute to the development of a Whole Building LCA Practice Guide
