Architects Climate Action (ACAN) launched their campaign to regulate embodied carbon in the UK this evening with over 300 people online! France, the Netherlands, Germany, Finland and Sweden have all got Embodied Carbon regulation in place, or require assessment of public buildings. The UK shouldn’t be able to leave 10-15% of its Greenhouse Gas Emissions unregulated when it has less than 30 years to reduce our carbon emissions to zero.
Three take away actions
1 Read ACAN’s report
2 Sign ACAN’s petition and
3 Send a copy of ACAN’s report to your MP, and ask them why we aren’t looking to regulate in this area.
