15 15 overall takeaways materials: the big story -embodied emissions; also life-cycle emissions -metals and concrete/cement have high carbon intensities and are used in large quantities -displacing virgin material with waste products reduces embodied and life-cycle GHGs -steel generally has high recycled content and is recyclable, concrete is not recyclable fuel: not as big as you think vegetation: not a major factor
