The embodied carbon impact of the building is 7 kg CO2e/m2/a. With wooden structures embodies carbon emissions can be reduced compared to other building materials even by 50%.
This case study stores 400 tons of carbon over the life cycle, which implies 1460 tons CO2 away from the atmosphere, and thereby offsets 43% of the total embodied carbon of the building.
Through biophilic design in the workplace the health and well being of employees can increase by as much as 13% and productivity can be increased by up to 8%.
