is a measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, organization, or product over a certain period of time. It is typically measured in units of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) and includes emissions from sources such as electricity consumption, transportation, and heating and cooling.
The carbon footprint of a building is primarily determined by its energy consumption, which is used for heating, cooling, lighting, and powering appliances and equipment. The energy used in the building’s construction, maintenance, and demolition also contribute to the carbon footprint.
is the process of reducing or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions in order to mitigate the effects of climate change. There are a variety of strategies that can be used to decarbonize the built environment, including: energy efficiency, renewable energy, net zero energy, low-carbon materials, sustainable transportation, carbon capture and storage, green roofs and walls. Overall, decarbonization strategies aim to decrease the built environment carbon footprint and reduce the impact of climate change.
is a way to balance out the carbon emissions caused by a building or organization by investing in projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. But in summary, carbon offsetting buildings is a way to compensate for the carbon emissions that a building or organization cannot avoid by investing in projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. It can be used in conjunction with other strategies to reduce emissions, such as energy efficiency and renewable energy.
refers to the process of verifying that a building or organization has taken measures to minimize its carbon emissions and operate sustainably.
This verification is usually carried out by a third-party organization that administers a certification program, which sets specific standards and requirements for achieving carbon neutrality.
The certification process involves measuring and quantifying the carbon emissions produced by the building or organization, identifying ways to reduce these emissions, and implementing solutions that result in a reduced carbon footprint.
We have a wealth of experience working as main building contractors on all kinds of projects, big and small, from home maintenance and improvements to extensions, refurbishments and new builds.
