About Carbon Footprint
Carbon footprint is well accepted as an important indicator of environmental sustainability of products and services. A new ISO standard, the ISO/TS 14067 has been developed to guide the quantification and communication of the carbon footprint of products. SGBC encourages Carbon Footprint Reporting through the Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) labelling scheme with the partnership of SIMTech. This breakfast talk will give insights into the influential elements of carbon footprint of buildings and share about the process and partnership with SGBC.
