Materials Passports and reversible building design tools support the building sector to take action for the climate. Reversible building design makes buildings adaptable and resilient , as well as facilitates the re-usability of buildings, products and materials. Embedded energy in building products, from harvesting of raw materials, production, transport etc., is a big part of a buildings’ energy consumption.
The circular use of building materials mitigate this embedded energy. Materials Passports give producers an incentive and opportunity to distinguish their products, showing their good work.
