Embodied Carbon: Developing a Client Brief, published by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) in March 2017, suggests cradle-to-completed construction is: ‘…an LCA (life cycle assessment) system boundary which combines all emissions from extraction, manufacturing and the transport of materials to site together with the emissions generated during construction. This may or may not include emissions associated with supporting services, such as design, worker travel to and from site etc.’
