Carbon in Buildings and Infrastructure

Professional Standards for carbon management of infrastructure projects is provided in PAS 2080: Carbon Management in Infrastructure, BSI 2016.

The Scottish Government has developed guidance Scottish City Region and Regional Growth Deals Carbon Management Guidance for Projects and Programmes (Sept 2021) to improve and support emissions measurement, monitoring and reduction in growth deal projects. This guidance uses PAS2080 as its framework, and goes on to provide a streamlined system for assessing and prioritising action on carbon within growth deal projects.

The guidance is also useful when considering carbon in infrastructure projects, buildings or as part of wider place-based climate plans.
