Construction and building materials are a heavy source of carbon emissions. Tackling embodied carbon in the built environment sector has proofed to be one of the biggest challenge, as also outlined in the NLA Report Zero Carbon London.
So what are the most sustainable materials that can be adopted in our buildings to lower carbon emissions? How can we make sure we used more recycled, natural and low-carbon materials in our buildings? What are the barriers and challenges?
In this webinar we heard from built environment professionals that showed best practice in the use of low carbon materials in buildings.
