Carbon Infrastructure Transformation Tool Project (CITT)

The CITT research project starts from the need to solve two key problems facing the construction industry presently: the ever more pressing need to reduce GHG emissions, and the highly fragmented nature of supply chains within the sector. The project seeks to develop and implement a tool to aid the alignment of supply chain actors through efficient design of incentives and the articulation of key carbon management challenges. The tool itself will demonstrate the embodied carbon and cost impact of each material element used in the creation of an infrastructure asset (identified through the bill of quantities), and will help to drive emission reductions by identifying opportunities to reduce carbon through innovation and supply chain engagement.
