Footprint calculation in construction

The construction sector is responsible for approximately 38 percent of the global carbon emissions. Material use alone accounts for 11 percent of global CO2 emissions. Do you have a company in construction and do you want start to make your business activities more sustainable?

Make sustainability within your organization measurable by calculating your footprint. This allows you to map out the environmental impact of your company in the construction industry. You can then take targeted steps towards a climate-neutral – or even climate-positive – company.

Calculating a footprint

How does it work?

Wondering how to calculate your company's footprint? A footprint calculation is usually conducted using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The life cycle analysis provides insight into no less than 16 impact categories, including CO2, water, land use and toxicity.

Greenhouse Sustainability offers useful tools that you can use to calculate the footprint of your company yourself. Of course we can also calculate the footprint of your company for you. In that case, you only need to provide the necessary data. Our LCA specialists then calculate the footprint and advise you on how to reduce your company's footprint.

Sustainable construction

Where to start?

The footprint calculation gives you insight into the sustainability of your (construction) company. If you know which business activities have the greatest environmental impact, you know which hotspots you should tackle first. For example lowering your energy consumption, making vehicles more sustainable, using renewable energy or reducing your waste stream. Help to make the construction sector more sustainable.
