VTT, GS1 and buildingSMART survey on carbon footprint management in construction projects

The DSCiBE work group (Digital Supply Chains in Built Environment) by GS1 and buildingSMART International launches in cooperation with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland a web-survey to study sustainability topics in the digital supply chains.

The survey collects information of market situation in different countries about managing carbon footprint in construction projects. The survey concentrates in CO2e emissions from material fabrication, transport and site operations. The emissions of the energy consumption in usage phase of the facility are excluded.
The survey is part of a research work that targets in how to manage CO2e emissions in the construction phase of a project. In the design phases is set the limiting value for carbon footprint and the supply chains and site operations shall be adapted to that. In practise, this will create new demand for environmentally friendly solutions and products in the domain.
