Three broad sectors of the economy are generally recognised as key to a low carbon future: energy, construction and transportation. Of these, carbon management in the built environment remains the least well-studied. This book brings together the latest developments in the field of climate change science, building design, materials science, energy and policy in a form readily accessible to both students of the built environment and practitioners. Although several books exist in the broad area of carbon management, this is the first to bring together carbon management technology, technique and policy as they apply to the building sector.
