- Piloting and evaluation of various ‘dynamic environmental impact measures’ to estimate embodied carbon in the forest-to-built environment value chain.
- Review of opportunities to develop new standards for the application of preferred dynamic environmental impact measures.
- Integrating dynamic impact measures with forest-to-built environment project specific narratives, to enable rigorous and transparent communication of the relative environmental merits of timber versus various other building materials at the building project level.
