LCA Helps Development Cut GHGs 60%
The lifecycle software consulting firm says its eTool LCA also identified the potential for the 172-apartment development to achieve up to almost an 80 percent reduction in GHGs.
ETool’s LCA includes the embodied carbon emissions within the mixed-use and car-free twin block development, as well as One Brighton’s day-to-day operational emissions from energy and water consumption. As with all eTool LCAs, they are conducted with eTool’s online software, giving international standard EN 15978 compliant outputs.
Commercial buildings can curb GHG emissions by benchmark energy and water consumption, along with six other sustainability strategies, Buildings.com reports.
