Motivation (why we need this feature): To comply with the New London Plan LCA policy, Which regions need the feature?: United Kingdom, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Which ratings systems require the feature?: New London Plan

The new London Plan Life Cycle Assessment policy will require the sequestered carbon of timber products to be included in the A1-A3 modules AND also reported separately in accordance with the relevant RICS paragraph. The RICS guidance requires the sequestered carbon to be calculated using the EN 16449 formula. It would be nice if the tool reported these figures automatically together with the rest of the results

    This would be really helpful. In addition, it would be good if the embodied (CO2eq) emissions associated with manufacturing & transport of these products could be presented alongside the sequestered biogenic C data. Carbon markets are starting to evolve for sequestered C storage in buildings and this would enable the net C storage benefit to be easily quantified for the calculation of C credits.
