RICS whole life carbon assessment 2nd edition

As of July 1, 2024, the RICS whole life carbon assessment 2nd edition comes into effect, having been extended to cover all buildings and infrastructure throughout the built environment life cycle. The new RICS WLCA PS 2nd edition standard will provide continuity and reliability while encouraging long-term thinking through reuse, recycling, and redevelopment.

  • Department for Energy, Security & Net Zero data for different means of worker transportation, and materials transportation with return trips embedded.
