Embodied GHG emissions of buildings – the hidden challenge for effective climate change mitigation

To meet climate-change mitigation needs, one must go beyond operational energy consumption and related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of buildings and address their full life cycle. Considering global GHG reduction targets, the results of this study emphasise the urgent need to reduce GHG emissions of...
