British Land ahead of embodied carbon schedule with One Click LCA
British Land has set an industry-leading target for reducing embodied carbon by 50% by 2030 and committed to make all developments delivered after April 2020 net zero carbon.
To deliver on these targets, British Land uses One Click LCA to conduct whole life carbon assessments for all new developments, refurbishments and Category A fit-outs. The assessments are performed across all the project stages from planning to completion, as well as for standing assets already in use.
Last month British Land announced that they have already reduced average embodied carbon across their portfolio to 640 kg CO2e/sqm, a third less than the industry average.
Although British Land is ahead of their schedule, work on decarbonisation continues to meet their ambitious portfolio carbon target.
Panu Pasanen, CEO of One Click LCA said: “We’re very proud to support British Land in implementation of their net-zero pathway, which sets a standard for the industry to follow. They have already made impressive progress and we work to go even further together.”
