BRE methodology for environmental profiles of construction materials, components and buildings

Howard, Nigel; Edwards, Suzy and Anderson, Jane (1999). BRE methodology for environmental profiles of construction materials, components and buildings. Watford: BRE Press.

Abstract

Reliable and independent environmental information about building materials and components is in high demand. Environmental Profiles provide a useful way of providing this information. To assist the working architect, client or building specifier, this information must be produced according to an agreed methodology. This is a standardised way of identifying and assessing the environmental effects of building materials over their entire life cycle, through their extraction, processing, construction, use and maintenance and their eventual demolition and disposal.
