Social Impact across the Built Environment: Prioritising people throughout the building life cycle
This report from the World Green Building Council and others can help you better understand the full range of social impacts related to the life cycle of buildings. Mirroring the concept of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions used to measure greenhouse gases, this report defines four scopes for the built environment that can be used to identify and assess social impacts. Scope 0 covers your internal practices, Scope 1 covers a building’s users, Scope 2 covers the surrounding community, and Scope 3 covers the construction supply chain. It also highlights a 5-step process for addressing issues identified in the Scopes, as well as case studies and a list of relevant resources. The scoping framework presented will be most useful to capital projects, real estate, and facilities teams, or anyone involved in developing or managing buildings.
