Title: Towards a framework for environmental assessment of building materials and components

Ref Code: BR355
Authors: J W Llewellyn and S Edwards

Abstract1: Materials used in construction have considerable environmental impact. This is most obvious during raw material extraction and product manufacture, but building design, use of materials and demolition can have equally significant environmental effects. This report aims to develop a framework, acceptable across Europe, for assessment of the major environmental impacts of building materials.
