In our current climate and ecological crises our industry is getting more comfortable with measuring whole life carbon, including the embodied carbon of materials and buildings. However, when it comes to biodiversity and nature impacts, efforts tend to be focused much more on the site level, forgetting the wider global impact resource extraction, use, and waste has on the planet.

This project will explore those embodied ecological impacts, raising awareness about our impact as an industry, and explore potential solutions. This task group will assist in the knowledge gathering and development of a co-created output which will be launching in Summer 2023.
