Certification Course on Life Cycle Assessment: Carbon Computation and Management Strategies

Event code: 81027


To accelerate the decarbonisation efforts in lowering the carbon footprint of building developments and infrastructures, it is essential to identify the carbon emissions associated with the materials and resources used during the construction and operation stages. Organisations can then perform life cycle assessment (LCA) through carbon computation and put together a carbon management strategy plan, to reduce the associated environmental impact.


This course aims to equip industry practitioners with knowledge on carbon computation to make informed decisions on the selection of carbon-efficient products/ technologies and management strategies during building design, construction and operational phases. At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Apply BCA GM: 2021 requirements, prevailing standards/ framework wherever applicable, to evaluate contributing factors of both embodied and operational carbon.
• Perform computation of both embodied and operational carbon of a building; and
• Analyse results and determine carbon management strategies to lower the overall carbon emission of a building.

MR CHEN WENJIE is the Associate Director for New Buildings Department of Building System & Diagnostics (BSD) who spearheads the ESD team and has completed projects in Singapore, Malaysia, China and other countries in Southeast Asia. He is the key technical expert for carbon reporting and carbon neutral roadmap advisory. He has assisted different stakeholders to establish tracking framework for operation carbon, review carbon emission targets, review environment product declaration and minimise carbon footprint at different building stages.
