Carbon Leadership Forum

The Embodied Carbon Network™ (ECN) is a collective group of individuals within focus groups committed to designing embodied and operational carbon out of our new and renovated buildings to achieve a carbon neutral built environment by 2050. The Embodied Carbon Network is hosted by the Carbon Leadership Forum.

The built environment accounts for nearly half of the United States’ total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While progress has been made toward improving the carbon footprint of the building sector – particularly through reducing carbon emitted by operating buildings – greater effort is needed to address ‘embodied’ carbon, the less discernible, yet equally important source of environmental degradation that results from producing building materials and construction.
