RP2007: Integrated Carbon Metrics (ICM): Scoping Study Results 2015

In order to ensure that the Integrated Carbon Metrics project meets industry and user needs a scoping study was conducted within Australia with construction industry professionals.  Results are outlined in this document.

The aim of the scoping study was to:

  • Gain an understanding of the construction industry’s current approach to embodied carbon assessment;
  • dentify perceived strengths and weaknesses of current embodied carbon assessment tools; and
  • Identify potential areas for improvement to existing tools and recommendations for development for new embodied carbon tools.
