Following on from the soon-to-be launched ICMS 3, the RICS is now undertaking an update to its Professional Statement in Whole Life Carbon Assessment for the Built Environment (1st Edition), published in 2017. The update will align with the taxonomy in ICMS 3 for classification of carbon reporting alongside cost reporting to allow these two key value metrics to be measured and considered. Importantly, the update will include benchmarking and early-stage advice for practitioners undertaking Life Cycle Assessments in building and infrastructure projects globally. The updated professional statement will put Chartered Surveyors at the forefront of this process which is essential in assisting the construction and built environment industries in achieving global carbon targets.
Take the survey to provide feedback on the current, 1st edition of the Whole Life Carbon Assessment and to help shape the development of a new edition!
Deadline: 16 January 2022
