Skanska conducted 35 carbon footprints in 2011 to benchmark project carbon emissions and to help
identify low-carbon project options, which can result in project carbon and financial savings.
This document briefly describes how Skanska’s BUs work to measure and reduce project carbon emissions, and illustrates their work with relevant project examples. 10 of the 20 examples cited supported project carbon savings, for embodied and/or operational carbon. doxycycline disp 100 mg pch en paracetamol
Clients are increasingly demanding carbon footprinting services, which are fundamental components of Skanska’s Journey to Deep GreenTM and Color PaletteTM. zoloft dosage ocd
Skanska Business Units (BUs) use various techniques to calculate the carbon footprint of projects. In addition to local tools, Skanska has developed a Group-wide project carbon footprinting tool, as part of its Green Toolbox, to support project teams and BUs that do not have an established footprinting tool of their own.
In May 2012, the ENCORD (European Network of Construction Companies for Research and Development) Protocol was launched, to which Skanska was an important contributor. The Protocol aims to guide how construction sector actors can measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions. It sets out minimum good practice requirements for measuring and reporting emissions.
Carbon savings often correspond directly to financial savings through reduced energy and material use. Carbon-related financial savings are expected to increase in the future due to increasing energy prices and carbon tax rises in Skanska’s markets. Carbon measurement or footprinting is the first step toward identifying low-carbon project options that lead to potential savings opportunities. can you use topicals while on accutane
What is a project carbon footprint?
Preliminary vs Project carbon footprinting
Embodied vs Operational carbon
The scope of a project’s carbon footprint can differ depending on the objectives of the study, data limitations and the footprinting criteria used. Carbon related to operation and demolition may also be excluded when Skanska has limited involvement in these phases.prednisolone dogs side effects uk
