Scope 3 emissions reporting can be challenging, but could widespread Whole Life Carbon Assessments (WLCAs) make the process easier? With a range of industry voices including UKGBC, Part Z and IStructE calling for regulations to mandate whole life carbon assessments, this session will explore how the industry can utilise and optimise emissions reporting. In particularly, panellists will discuss:

  • How to understand the link between project-level WLCAs and organisation-level emissions reporting
  • How using WLCAs within Scope 3 reporting could improve the overall accuracy of emission reporting in accordance with GHG Protocol
  • Why widespread WLCAs are necessary to focus industry’s emissions reduction efforts on the critical areas, the construction and operation of built assets

Hear from key stakeholders working to implement these procedures within their businesses and the effects that doing so is having for the wider construction industry.
