This year’s Stewardship Report focuses on an issue of relevance for all materials specifiers that has gained more widespread attention during the past year and continues to build momentum. Throughout this report our experts will address: What is embodied carbon and why does it matter?
Walter P Moore understands the importance of embodied carbon and has been actively embracing our role in reducing it as structural engineers since 2002. During this time we have improved our design process, refined our specifications, and participated in many industry-leading activities to both bring awareness and achieve reductions in embodied carbon. These activities include our long-term involvement in The Carbon Leadership Forum, leadership on USGBC committees, and taking a founding role in the Embodied Carbon Network as well as the SE 2050 Initiative and our sponsorship of the EC3 tool.
We encourage you to engage with this report, explore resources and tools, and continue the dialogue. There is room for change on every project.
