What our customers say

At dsquared, the Green Book is a valuable tool to provide our clients at the early stages of a project with insight in the carbon footprint of various materials and assist with their selections to help minimise the environmental impact of the project. Thanks Caroline and TFC team, for your ongoing support on this journey.”

– René Schlosser, dsquared consulting

“Finally, there’s a reliable tool that gives people access to embodied carbon data without marketing spin and greenwashing.”

– John Dalla Via, Egger Group

About the Greenbook

The GreenBook™ is a self-contained information resource for embodied carbon of construction materials and assemblies. It also contains benchmarks of embodied carbon performance “Good to poor” for most building types in Australia and some global data points. We think of it as google translate for materials carbon. We have a wide variety of individual materials product declarations, generic information on materials and assemblies (standard assemblies) and also the most important converting that data from a declaration (e.g. 1kg brick – into 1m2 of finished brick wall on site). It also allows the ability to compare the embodied carbon of that wall to many other wall types to work out which is the lowest. It facilitates professionals in the built environment industry to test out materials and assemblies during all design stages and thus reducing the upfront carbon for their projects and thus increasing awareness of evaluating embodied carbon.

Because this option is “plug & play” and ready to use immediately,  plus requires minimal training to get started, you’ll get accurate carbon insights for your material selections fast. You can save up on LCA consultancy fees and up-skill your team by bringing the LCA process in-house with a subscription to suit your business. The features of the Greenbook are stated below.
