Times of change and challenges allow us to reassess our traditional practices and develop new solutions. This Stewardship Report focuses on an issue of relevance for all material specifiers, and that is an essential part of making near-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Throughout this report, our experts address: What embodied carbon is, and why we must reduce it.

Walter P Moore understands the importance of embodied carbon. Since 2002 we have actively embraced our role as engineers seeking to reduce the embodied carbon of our designs. We continue to improve the design process, refine material specifications, and participate in many industry-leading activities, to both bring awareness and achieve meaningful reductions in embodied carbon in the built environment.

We encourage you to engage with this report, explore resources and tools, and continue the dialogue. There is room for change in every project.
