Developing an EU-wide Whole-Life Carbon Roadmap for buildings

Join the kick off webinar of the study aiming to develop an EU-wide whole life carbon roadmap, commissioned by DG ENV and led by Ramboll in collaboration with KU Leuven and BPIE.

Recently, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for the Environment (DG ENV) commissioned a study aimed at developing an EU-wide whole life carbon roadmap, outlining how all building-related emissions can be mitigated by 2050. The study is conducted by a consortium led by Ramboll in collaboration with KU Leuven and BPIE (Buildings Performance Institute Europe).  

The purpose of the study is to support the development of an EU roadmap for the reduction of whole life carbon, for embodied and operational carbon separately and combined.  
It will:  

  • Establish a baseline for embodied carbon emissions of buildings across European regions, 
  • Describe how the levels of embodied carbon for a representative selection of building types and typologies can be expected to evolve by 2050, 
  • Set the trajectory towards climate objectives for operational carbon in various scenarios, and  
  • Identify and assess the impact of whole life carbon emissions reduction solutions. 

The study will rely on the collaboration with stakeholders within the building and construction ecosystem and it includes a broad stakeholder engagement programme that foresees the consultation of relevant actors at different stages of the project. 

If you would like to learn more about the study, join the Kick-off Webinar on the 8th of March 2022, from 15:00 to 16:15 CET.
