For many years we have focused on reducing energy use and thus carbon emissions from the operations of buildings. According to Architecture 2030, embodied carbon will account for almost half of new construction emissions between now and 2050. This raises significant questions related to building service life and to the relative importance of insulating glass durability and thermal performance.
