Join TDUK on Tuesday 14 February to hear how the AECB Carbon Calculator can enable you calculate the embodied carbon in your assemblies.
Charlie Law, TDUK’s Sustainability Director
Tim Martell, AECB carbon calculator developer
When: Tuesday 14 February 2023 1-2 pm
Where: Online via Zoom meetings to enable questions
The AECB carbon calculator is an excel based tool that will enable TDUK members to work out an embodied carbon figure for their assemblies or sub-assemblies that are made up from several other products that have EPD’s.
A timber frame wall panel may consist of - studs, headers and footers, sheathing boards, vapour barriers, breather membranes, insulation and fasteners, etc. each of these items will have a separate embodied carbon figure.
By inputting the quantity of each item which you select from the extensive product library, you can quickly calculate the embodied carbon of your wall panel.
The output from the AECB carbon calculator can be passed on to your client, for inclusion within their whole life carbon assessment.
This builds on the work of the Timber Industry Net Zero Roadmap.
TDUK members will receive 15% of the carbon tool via a coupon code.

Tim is an AECB Expert Advisor and an expert in CO2 calculations for buildings. He qualified as a Passivhaus Designer in 2012 and worked on new build, retrofit, domestic and commercial PHPP models. For several years he contributed data for the AECB Retrofit course. Later he also qualified as a Retrofit Coordinator and coordinated 90 retrofits in London. Four years ago he started developing the AECB’s PHribbon software, combining his experience in PHPP with earlier work in research and as a programmer. Tim saw a great need for Embodied CO2 calculations that could be easily done in PHPP. He has continuously improved the software ever since, given many talks on it, and there are now Canadian and US versions.
