On the road to zero-emissions buildings, embodied carbon has been recognized as a blind spot of the building industry, and effort has gone into mitigating the carbon emissions tied to steel, concrete, wood, and other structural & enclosure materials.

However, other major systems hiding within the walls of our buildings are not generally considered, but are made of some of the most carbon-intensive (per kilogram) materials – the systems that keep our buildings ventilated, sanitary, and powered.

As Canada works towards a zero carbon building sector, Passive House buildings are uniquely situated to support achieving some of the most drastic reductions in these blind spots within a blind spot.
