Student Workshops

UNSW’ mission is to prepare the best students for the world.

The ‘Built Environment’ stream has a multi-disciplinary honors class which covers life cycle assessment of buildings, to which we have presented lectures on embodied carbon in construction materials . The students use our Footprint Calculator to gain experience on how LCA is used in real life to inform sustainability outcomes of a project.

The Footprint Company has worked with UNSW to achieve:

  • Students identifying > 30% carbon reductions in actual designs
  • Over 80% of students saying they better understand LCA’s place in the built environment
