Embodied energy and carbon footprint database

The Greenbook is Australia’s number one source of embodied carbon rates for materials and construction assemblies.

Cloud based and continuously updated, The Greenbook is your desktop go to companion in helping you make the best design decisions for today's challenging design environment.

Whole building LCA

The Footprint Calculators are a powerful cloud-based whole building LCA and modelling platform that covers all property types and development stages.

Take control of your sustainable design process with super-fast estimating and modelling and the ability to see the drivers with our benchmark reporting.

footprintcompant

The Footprint Insights is one of the most comprehensive sets of aggregated property specific life cycle carbon statistics available that allows you to analyse whole buildings or various elements of a design against the market.

Understand the drivers of your designs and make effective changes to deliver best-in-class carbon performance.

Smoking the Planet


Smoking the Planet – the inconvenient back story of responsible retail. The average operating energy related carbon emissions intensity of retail tenancies is up to 8 times higher than the retail base building. Retail energy efficiency to date has been almost solely focussed on the base building, through NABERS ratings at the expense of tenancies….
