Capital carbon

Embodied Carbon: Developing a Client Brief, published by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) in March 2017, suggests capital carbon: ‘…refers to emissions associated with the creation of an asset. Capital carbon is being adopted within the infrastructure sector because it accords with the concept of capital cost. (Going forward, the related term “embodied carbon” will continue to be used at a product-level, whereas capital carbon will have greater relevance at an asset-level).’
