Measuring and Reducing Embodied Carbon

About this Report

Leaders in commercial industrial real estate seeking to ensure a resilient and sustainable logistics model are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the construction of new buildings. This effort is relatively new and this report seeks to provide a better understanding of the emissions associated with constructing industrial buildings. This report is limited to assessing emissions related to the construction of the structure and enclosure of a core & shell industrial building only and is not intended to represent a standard for the industry.

We are hopeful that the industrial real estate and construction sectors will continue to improve their methods for quantifying GHG emissions and employ reduction strategies. This report is intended to engage these industries to promote increased competency and transparency related to embodied carbon emissions.
