In the second of the two Low Carbon Master Class, the topic was measurement, management and reduction with the emphasis on the the translation of academic data intyo practical solutions for the reduction of carbon.
Craig Jones (Founding Director, Circular Ecology) covered the framing of the raw carbon data and its development into the fundamental data used to determine carbon footprints for projects.
Maria Manidaki (Senior Policy Advisor, Mott MacDonald) outlined the process and architecture for the development of a carbon footprinting system using carbon curves built upon the fundamental data.
David Riley (Carbon Manager, Anglian Water) explained how Anglian Water put practical tools into the hands of engineering practitioners, enabling them to quantify the carbon and cost associated with materials, transport and site activities, identify the carbon ‘hot spots’ and then to compare options and systematically drive efficiency. The evidence of over £10m savings on a £24m project and carbon savings of over 60%.
A video of the two Low Carbon Master Class sessions will be available soon and I will update this post once the web-link is available.
