According to a study in 2019 by the World Green Building Council, buildings are currently responsible for 39% of global energy related carbon emissions. A further study by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development in 2021 found that a facade can contribute up to 31% of the total embodied carbon of a building.  You can find out more about how Patrick Ryan Associates have worked to reduce Embodied Carbon using our 69 Park Lane, Croydon project as a case study.

In December 2022, Patrick Ryan Associates delivered a talk on Sustainability & Embodied Carbon Reduction at our networking event, Façade Focus. We used our 69 Park Lane, Croydon refurbishment project as a case study by implementing the Centre for Windows and Cladding (CWCT) methodology which calculates the Embodied Carbon of Facades.

A summary of this is now available.  Read the full article here
