Whole Life Carbon in the Built Environment – CPD Guide & Webinar

Last updated: 21st June 2023

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest CPD guide: Whole Life Carbon in the Built Environment and invite you to register for the associated CPD webinar on the 4th July at 2pm.


Whole Life Carbon (WLC) is gaining prominence in the built environment as concerns grow about the environmental impact of buildings and the urgent need to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. WLC refers to the carbon emissions associated with a building throughout its entire lifecycle, encompassing both embodied carbon and operational carbon.

Embodied carbon accounts for emissions from materials and construction, while operational carbon stems from energy use during occupancy. The concept of WLC aligns with the circular economy, emphasising refurbishment and reuse to extend a building’s lifespan and reduce embodied carbon. 



Delivered by our Product Specialists, this CPD Webinar examines the impact of WLC considerations on specification decisions, looking at some of the critical areas designers and installers should consider and questions they should ask when making decisions around building services.

Following the CPD webinar, you will also have the opportunity to put your questions direct to our experts in a live Q&A session.
