The building industry accounts for 39% of the global Green House Gas emissions worldwide. By 2050, the part of embodied carbon in new construction will increase significantly versus operational carbon, rising from 20% to 50%, a much more balanced ratio. This will make embodied carbon a real challenge for tomorrow. Facades alone account for up to 20% of this building embodied carbon footprint:
- How does it vary from one facade typology to another?
- What about the glass impact?
- How to reduce this footprint? What are the levers?
- How can the brand-new Low Carbon Glass from Saint-Gobain Glass contribute?
Saint-Gobain Glass is pleased to welcome 3 panellists to discuss these questions:
- Emily Walport, Arup, Senior Engineer, co-author of the study “Carbon footprint of facades: significance of glass”
- François Guillemot, Saint-Gobain Glass, Low Carbon Glass project manager
- Julie VINSON, Saint-Gobain Glass, Specification Director
