Net-zero Carbon and Climate-resilient Developments

Our team of climate experts can help your project take advantage of the latest climate-smart thinking and strategies.

What we Do

Mantle Developments helps create projects that go beyond energy efficiency, incorporating resilience and life cycle approaches so that your project is future proof and net-zero carbon ready.

Mantle Developments Embodied Carbon Management

NET-ZERO CONSTRUCTION & WHOLE-LIFE CARBON MANAGEMENT

The manufacture and transportation of construction materials is responsible for over 11% of global emissions and 50% of emissions from new buildings to 2050. Mantle Developments understands, quantifies, minimizes, offsets/removes, and reports these emissions.

PRODUCT & MATERIAL LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT (LCA) and CERTIFIED ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATIONS (EPD)

Leading owners and designers of building and infrastructure are asking for low-carbon products and materials to help achieve their net-zero ambitions. When product and material manufacturers are asked “what is the carbon footprint of your concrete block” (or any other product or material), many simply don’t know and are lacking data and documentation.

Climate Resilient Construction

Climate Resilient Construction

Our changing climate means that developments are increasingly being subjected to weather conditions they weren’t designed for, from floods to wildfire. Mantle Developments can help your organization understand your business and/or project’s exposure to climate risk and provide targeted solutions.

Low-carbon Construction & Certification

Mantle Developments can help your project achieve climate-related voluntary certifications and mandatory regulatory requirements.

Low-carbon Construction & Compliance
Mantle Developments Policy Development & Research

Policy Development & Research

We support leading policymakers, asset owners, and developers to research and develop innovative climate-smart strategies, plans, and policies.

Education & Training

The first step to creating low-carbon and climate-resilient developments is to understand why these are good for people, the planet, and long-term profits. Mantle Developments provides custom training that can be tailored to suit your stakeholders from tenants to board and executives.
