Can carbon sequestration by buildings make a difference?

The answer is yes.  Following on from my MSc Dissertation completed January 2010, on carbon sequestration by housing, I have been asked by the Alliance of Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) to undertake research into carbon sequestration by buildings/construction as a whole.

Preliminary indications from the work are that more than 10Mt/yr of carbon dioxide are already being sequestered by buildings and that this figure could be increased to more than 20Mt/yr by 2050 with appropriate policies to encourage the use of wood and biogenic materials.
