This training follows the release of CIBSE TM65 Embodied carbon of building services: a calculation methodology. The aim of this TM was to create a simple calculation methodology to calculate embodied carbon of MEP equipment when no Environmental Product Declarations is available. This training will present how to implement the guidance from TM65 into the design process as well as present some worked examples. Tips on how to implement this guidance further will also be shared.

Learning Outcomes 

  • An understanding of embodied carbon definitions
  • An understanding of EPDs vs TM65 data points
  • Ability to complete a TM65 basic and mid-level calculation
  • Ability to complete TM65 system level calculations
  • Building Services engineers at any level
  • Sustainability Consultants with LCA experience/interest
  • MEP products Manufacturers
