BUILDING LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT
Due to climate change and limited resources, there has been a growing environmental
awareness across the world in terms of carbon emissions, energy efficiency, water and
resource management. This has aroused great attention to the building sector which is
responsible for approximately 40% of the world’s energy consumption, 30% of raw material
use, 25%of solid waste, 25% of water use, and 33% of the related carbon emissions.
Life-cycle assessment (LCA), therefore, plays a key role in evaluating the total environmental impacts of buildings from their construction and operation to their demolition phase, by identifying and quantifying the energy and material use and their emissions. It also aims to evaluate the risks and apply the opportunities for sustainable developments.
Florawise can support you to identify a building’s environmental hotspots and to provide the optimum strategic solutions to reduce them. Florawise also can provide you with technical datasets for sustainability or ESG reporting.
