Version 2.0 of The Structural Carbon Tool is live!

The new version of The Structural Carbon Tool is now available to download! Key updates include the most current advice on carbon factors (with notable changes on UK steel and mass timber following research last year) and a revised approach to describing biogenic carbon in timber. The guide has new content on embodied carbon in bridges, and the tool now features temporary works and replacement cycles as standard.

The tool can be downloaded for free from the Institution of Structural Engineers' (IStructE) website:

The Structural Carbon Tool is an open-source Excel-based carbon estimator that we developed in conjunction with the IStructE. We created it to help practising structural engineers make quantitative decisions as to how best reduce embodied carbon in their projects. ⁠

Well done to Penny Gowler and Thomas Howarth for their hard work updating the tool and to Will Arnold from IStructE!⁠
