Embodied Carbon

Whether you want to decarbonize the built environment, or just know where you stand, 4EA can help.

Embodied Carbon

Evaluating value chain emissions and whole building life cycle assessments (wbLCA) serve as crucial tools in understanding the carbon impact of products and processes throughout their entire life cycle – from raw material extraction to end-of-life disposal. By conducting a wbLCA, organizations can gain a comprehensive understanding of which materials and processes on their building have the largest environmental impacts. Our goal is to help our clients transition to lower-carbon solutions – without adding cost and complexity to the project.

  • wbLCA for code compliance (City of Vancouver, State of California).
  • Embodied carbon design and consultation.
