With Cost & Carbon truly integrated at resource level, Sterling is able to instantly calculate and report carbon in accordance with PAS 2080. 

With Sterling, carbon calculation is truly integrated. When managing portfolio Libraries, when editing the rates of a resource, the fields for editing the carbon rates are right alongside the fields for the cost rates. When editing the resources of a project in Resource Manager, the carbon value fields are right alongside the cost value fields.

When revising the measurements in 2D or 3D Take-off, the report on the impacts of the increases and decreases in quantities shows you the carbon impacts right alongside the cost impacts. When editing individual cost items within the Cost Plan, the carbon fields are… you guessed it… right alongside the cost fields!

In the quest to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint, regardless of the percentage decrease or the deadline of your local government, you need accurate, detailed, auditable data about the carbon impact of your project.


Without the ability to truly calculate the carbon of your project to a granular level of detail, the process of finding ways to reduce carbon, whether by changes in design, construction, operation or end-of-life, will be that much harder. We all know that the legislation and industry standard processes are going to get more onerous in the coming years.
