Carbon hotspot

Embodied Carbon: Developing a Client Brief, published by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) in March 2017, defines a carbon hotspot as: ‘The carbon significant aspect of a project which should be targeted for reduction. Carbon hotspots represent not only carbon-intense or high volume elements but also quick wins, where measurement data is more easily available and where carbon reductions are possible.’
