City Handbook for Carbon Neutral Buildings

In pursuit of sustainable urban development, the City Handbook for Carbon Neutral Buildings has been created by the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance (CNCA), and its partner cities, in collaboration with Arup. With funding from Built by Nature, this comprehensive guide facilitates access to knowledge about working with biobased materials and offers professional and practical direction for policymakers and practitioners worldwide, thanks to insights and strategies outlined for reducing embodied carbon in construction through the use of materials ranging from timber and seaweed to hemp and rice fibres.
