Sustainability & Carbon


Cost is just one measure of value. We help you quantify and manage your project’s carbon footprint to unearth environmental and social value.

Carbon Estimating


Carbon Estimating

Whether you need support to measure and reduce your project’s carbon emissions, build a business case for social projects, or enhance the energy efficiency of your assets, our team is ready to provide you with expert advice so that you can make informed, sustainable and holistic business decisions.
Our carbon estimating service not only empowers you to quantify your project’s carbon emissions, but it also facilitates alignment with international or national sustainability targets.

Embodied carbon estimating

Embodied carbon emissions, stemming from the manufacturing, transportation, installation, and disposal of building materials during the construction phase, can be challenging to address. RLB can help you to quantify these emissions and offer solutions to help minimise your project's embodied carbon footprint.

Digital solutions that drive change

At RLB, we prioritise digital solutions to streamline data collection, ensuring precision in calculations, and fostering seamless collaboration among stakeholders invested in sustainable construction. Our commitment to stay at the forefront of digital innovation ensures that you benefit from state-of-the-art tools that drive positive change for your sustainability goals.

Choosing RLB means aligning with a partner committed to the same net zero journey. Our global carbon policy reflects our dedication to international targets outlined in the Paris Agreement, and we have set an ambitious goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2030 as a global business. We understand the challenges ahead and can help you to meet them.
