SGBC Carbon Footprint Course: Assessing the Carbon Footprint of your Building Product

Assess the environmental impact of your product, and gain the foundational skills needed to compute and prepare carbon emissions data for sustainability reporting, or the skills needed to produce a simplified assessment report to communicate a product’s carbon footprint.

Embodied Carbon is Carbon Dioxide that is emitted during the extraction, manufacturing and transport of building materials and products. For Singapore to have a truly sustainable built environment, the embodied carbon of our buildings is an issue that needs to be addressed holistically by all players in the building and construction supply chain.

Recommended for product companies, building developers, and consultants in the built environment sector who are keen to uncover the carbon footprint of products and building materials.
Join SGBC’s Assessing the Carbon Footprint of Building Products Course to learn more about the environmental impact of building products and gain the skills needed to produce a simplified assessment report to communicate a product’s carbon footprint.
