How Simple Material Substitutions Can Reduce Embodied Carbon
Using less material and choosing materials wisely can significantly reduce the embodied carbon of a home, often without raising costs. Home builders can take immediate steps to achieve 30 to 50 percent emissions reductions with commercially available, affordable, and code-compliant building materials and by targeting just a few key material categories: concrete, insulation, cladding, and interior surfaces.
