eToolLCD is one of a handful of tools that has been accepted as a carbon calculator suitable to measure the embodied carbon of building designs for the Living Building Challenge (LBC) framework. Our free to access software has bespoke templates for LBC projects and can be used to calculate embodied energy in order for its reduction or offset. Get in touch with us if you’d like to discuss your LBC project.
