The marginal carbon cost of decisions should be factored into operational decision making, taking into account life-cycle carbon impacts where possible and in a transparent and open manner.

The carbon emissions associated with most projects are being considered and decisions are being taken that will reduce their carbon emissions. At times this will be due to specific consideration of carbon, at other times it will be associated with cost reduction and value engineering, or optimisation of technology and transport. Examples include low carbon concrete, hiring equipment to prevent the need for new items to be produced and the use of various biofuels. Plans are developing for this to be taken into account with City Operations. This was not demonstrably the case with the design of the Orbit. Closed

This review was published in December 2009 so it was too early to report on progress in the 2009 Annual Review. A statement on progress will be provided in the 2010 Annual Review.
