Abodo’s Construction Carbon Pyramid

Ever wondered about the carbon storage of different building materials? The Construction Carbon Pyramid makes it easy to compare.

In most countries, everyone knows the food pyramid. It tells us about the relationship between our food intake and our health; what we can eat in large quantities and what should we eat less of.

Based on a similar concept, we have put together the Construction Carbon Pyramid, for materials commonly used in the New Zealand construction industry.

Using the pyramid, we can quickly compare the carbon storage of different materials, with materials that store less carbon at the top of the pyramid, and materials which store more at the bottom. See source
