This project aims to leverage existing policies to reduce embodied carbon in retrofits. This research identifies policies and incentives for reducing embodied carbon emissions in the existing building sector and provides policy recommendations. The findings can assist policy-makers and other stakeholders in gaining a holistic view of retrofit policies, understanding the barriers to the uptake of retrofit schemes, and developing more efficient retrofit policies in the future.
