Embodied carbon benchmark for European buildings

The research aims to provide high quality, European embodied carbon benchmark data supporting policy creation publicly and freely available to various regulators and private organisations seeking to establish corporate policies that require pan-European information.


About the guide

The Embodied Carbon Benchmarks for European buildings research provides benchmark data for European buildings including Northern Europe, Western Europe and Eastern Europe, and five main building types:

  • Commercial
  • Educational
  • Industrial
  • Office
  • Residential multifamily 

Based on over 15 000 building LCA projects

The dataset, containing 3737 European buildings, is consistently calculated in line with EN 15978:2011 and Level(s) methodologies for life-cycle phases A1-A4, B4-B5 and C1-C4.
The retained sample is obtained by screening a total dataset of over 15 000 building LCA projects to retain only projects with consistent minimum scope and plausibility
