To reduce the impact of climate change, we have a short window and huge challenge: we must completely decarbonize the built environment. This means reducing energy consumption, shifting to all renewable energy sources, and radically cutting the embodied carbon of our construction materials and processes.
EHDD built the Early Phase Integrated Carbon Assessment (EPIC) to support our Climate Positive Commitment. We needed a tool that informed climate-positive design decisions early when data is scarce, but carbon reduction potential is high. Now, we are sharing it with the world so we can move collectively faster and more boldly towards a Climate Positive tomorrow.
