Title: BRE methodology for environmental profiles of construction materials, components and buildings

Ref Code: BR370
Authors: N Howard, S Edwards and J Anderson

Abstract1: Reliable and independent environmental information about building materials and components is in high demand. Environmental profiles provide a useful way of providing this. To assist the architect, client and building specifier, the information must be produced according to an agreed methodology. This report provides a standardised way of identifying and assessing the environmental effects of building materials over their entire life cycle, through their extraction, processing, construction, use and maintenance and their eventual demolition and disposal.
