Penny Gowler and Will Arnold preview a new embodied carbon tool that has been developed by Elliott Wood and the Institution of Structural Engineers.
Arup have assembled a package of quick and easy guides to help practising engineers understand the origins of carbon factors for three key construction materials: steel, concrete, and timber.
In the form of embodied carbon, steel is a significant contributor to the climate crisis. This guidance sets out how structural engineers can use their steel specifications to help move the industry towards net zero.
