Explanation of CIBSE TM65 Embodied Carbon Calculator

Cutting down greenhouse gas emissions (typically referred to as carbon emissions) associated with the built environment has become a priority given our climate crisis. This requires design teams to take a ‘whole life carbon’ approach to their designs, by mitigating both operational carbon and embodied carbon throughout the life cycle of a built asset. TM65 methodology enables an engineer to work out embodied carbon.

  • What is embodied Carbon ?
  • Why we measure it ?
  • What does TM65 do ?
  • How does this work ?
  • Where can I get the TM65 Tool from
