Embodied Carbon Action Plans (ECAP)

Your firm’s ECAP is central to your commitment to SE 2050 and to the path to net zero embodied carbon structures. The ECAP articulates how you will educate your firm’s staff in embodied carbon, how you will report the embodied carbon of your projects, how you will document your embodied carbon reduction strategies and how you will advocate within the industry. We ask that firms put careful thought into the plan and consider what you can implement within your unique firm and how you can be most impactful. Firms are given 6 months to develop their ECAP prior to uploading to the firm’s account. There are no right or wrong ECAPs, however, there are minimum expectations for each ECAP and we hope your plan captures opportunities unique to your practice. All ECAPs are to be public and the firm will have an option to upload their own ECAP document or fill out a simple form outlining minimums. The four requirements are listed below.

  • Education
  • Reporting

The ECAP requirements are outlined in the Program Requirements Guidance Document.  Please note that a firm’s first year ECAP is permitted to be in a checklist format.
