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
