Help available for estimating embodied carbon in building systems

June 11, 2019

Pankow foundation has released three reports to help the buildings sector estimate embodied carbon in mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in office buildings and for tenant improvement projects. The three reports, which address commercial office buildings and  tenant improvement projects in the Pacific Northwest, are part of a broader study for calculating embodied carbon in construction.


As building systems are often replaced every 10 to 20 years, the accumulated carbon impacts can be significant. The project aims to create an LCA practice guide and establish embodied carbon benchmarks for buildings. Estimates of Embodied Carbon for Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Tenant Improvements summarizes study results, compares findings with other benchmark studies and discusses their implications.

The reports are available for free download at the Pankow website.
