Passivhaus & Embodied Carbon

Embodied Carbon

Radically reducing operational energy is what the Passivhaus standard does well, but what about embodied carbon? 

Explore the relationship between Passivhaus and embodied carbon. Get access to the on-demand recording of the popular webinar to learn more about the Trust’s Embodied Carbon paper, followed by engaging presentations from key experts. It is an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand from industry practitioners as they share real-life case studies and valuable lessons learnt.
