Embodied Carbon Report

The data in the new report on Embodied Carbon from the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Local Government, and Heritage speaks for itself.

Accelerating the use of timber in construction is vital to meet the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2021 commitments of net zero carbon by 2050, and achieve a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

The report states ‘It is apparent that unless steps are taken to address the issue there will be a significant increase in construction-related carbon emissions.’ https://bit.ly/3ScgUJY
