A research programme at the University of Cambridge Centre for Sustainable Development is developing a robust methodology for the capital (also known as embodied) carbon in buildings which is both valid and usable, with a new database of relevant information. This will form part of a whole life financial, energy and carbon costing tool. This talk described the methodology and database, discusses why policy has omitted to include capital carbon, and explains why it is crucial that research and industry now join together to make up for lost time.
