PIPA has recently become a founding member of the Materials and Embodied Carbon Leaders’ Alliance (MECLA). This collaboration of organisations comes together to drive reductions in embodied carbon in the building and construction industry. Seeking to align with the Paris Agreement targets and principals of the circular economy recognising that the building and construction sector is a complex ecosystem. PIPA will partake in one of the working groups to address barriers and identify opportunities defining best practice embodied carbon evaluation framework, capture industry case studies, develop a common language for procurement guidelines, help manage climate transition risk and support the acceleration of the materials supply side.
