Carbon sequestration by buildings

The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) have recently been publicising work we did for them last year where we estimated the potential for sequestering CO2 in the UK building stock.  We estimated that up to 22MtCO2 per year could be sequestered by 2050 if policy was directed towards use of biogenic materials.  Follow link for sequestered carbon report.

ASBP have discussed the figure with DECC who are interested in the clear potential of carbon sequestration by buildings.
