Building carbon footprint

Calculate your building's carbon footprint

Simplify the process of calculating and reducing the carbon footprint across all life-cycle stages of your building. Achieve green building certification with ease and precision.

What is building carbon footprint?

Building carbon footprint is the cumulative greenhouse gasses emitted during a building's life-cycle, encompassing both emissions from energy use (operational carbon) and materials (i.e. embodied carbon, capital carbon). 

Understanding and managing these emissions is crucial for making informed, sustainable decisions in construction projects. This approach is increasingly demanded by clients, regulatory bodies, and green building certification programs.
