Embodied Carbon Verification (ECV) Scheme

The Scheme is an initiative developed in consultation with CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) to advance environmentally friendly practices within the built environment. It covers MEP products used for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, electrical and public health but does not include non-standard equipment such as photovoltaics.

The TM65 publication and methodology for the UK is available from CIBSE https://www.cibse.org/tm65 and manufacturers of MEP products can use the tools supplied to do self assessments of their products.

The ECV scheme adds an additional layer of credibility, and participation allows manufacturers to have their embodied carbon claims independently verified, and demonstrate their green credentials.
