Abstract
This guide explores how the building industry in British Columbia can meet the challenges of reducing energy use in buildings, in part by effectively accounting for the impact of thermal bridging. Most practitioners will find PART1 and Appendices A and B to be most useful. PART 1 outlines how to effectively account for thermal bridging. Appendices A and B provide a catalog of common building envelope assemblies and interface details, and their associated thermal performance data. Researchers and regulators will be interested in PART 2 and PART 3, and Appendices C to E. They contain the cost-benefit analysis, and discussion on significance and further insights, of using this guide to mitigate thermal bridging in buildings.

Abstract
This calculator is intended as a companion to the Product Category Rules for North American Structural and Architectural Wood Prodcuts. It serves to simplify and standardize the approach to biogenic carbon accounting when developing EPDs according to that PCR. This tool comes in two versions: one for use with cradle-to-grave LCA data (the B2C tool) and one for use with cradle-to-gate LCA data (the B2B tool)

Abstract
This Type III environmental declaration is developed according to ISO 21930 and 14025 for glued-laminated timber (glulam) manufactured at Nordic Structures. This environmental product declaration (EPD) reports environmental impacts based on established life cycle impact assessment (LCA) methods. The reported environmental impacts are estimates, and their level of accuracy may differ for a particular product line and reported impact. LCAs do not generally address site-specific environmental issues related to resource extraction or toxic effects of products on human health. Unreported environmental impacts include (but are not limited to) factors attributable to human health, land use change and habitat destruction. Forest certification systems and government regulations address some of these issues. The products in this EPD conform to: Forest Management Standards of Quebec and forest certification schemes (Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Certification of Forest anagement Enterprises (CEAF)). EPDs do not report product environmental performance against any benchmark.

The reported environmental impacts are estimates, and their level of accuracy may differ for a particular product line and reported impact. LCAs do not generally address sitespecific environmental issues related to resource extraction or toxic effects of products on human health.
