asphalt Pavement Embodied Carbon Tool

Project Overview

Recognising the importance of sustainability issues for industry as a whole, the project team and focus group set out to create a ‘sustainability management system’ for the highways sector. Initial scoping prioritised greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measurement as the key sustainability issue and this became the focus of the project: to create a standardised method to measure the contribution to climate change of highway products and applications and to achieve endorsement from the sector in doing so.

The asPECT method facilitates measurement of the ‘whole life’ contribution of highway products to climate change. The life cycle steps included are indicated in the diagram below.
