Why the construction industry is managing carbon

Carbon management is the process of tracking, analysing, and reducing your carbon emissions to protect your business and unlock commercial benefits.

Uncover your hidden carbon hotspots

Only six materials account for 70% of construction’s embodied carbon emissions. By making seemingly small supply chain tweaks, you can have a drastic impact on your carbon footprint. It’s blindspots like these that create significant risk, but also opportunities, for the industry


Help customers meet their sustainability goals

Clients and specifiers are increasingly looking favourably on construction companies that offer sustainable options. They often have their own sustainability targets to meet, and the company that can help them reach that goal will often win the tender, even for a premium. Achieving a BREAM or LEED rating and complying with local regulation helps signal this.


Become an industry leader to investors

The construction industry is responsible for 38% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. Direct building CO2 emissions need to halve by 2030 to get on track for net zero carbon building stock by 2050. Being able to measure and report on your emissions and their reductions will prove to investors that you’re leading the pack in the industry’s decarbonisation.

Why is Emitwise right for construction?
