Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Introduction

Environmental management is essential for properly estimating the negative and positive

environmental impacts brought about by a construction project in order to reduce the environmental

burden and create environmental benefits. Environmental considerations for a structure, in particular,

are to be carried out at the design stage and be integrated with conventional structural design and

durability design. To this end, standardization of the design procedure for environmental design

becomes a necessity.

ISO 14040 stipulates the principles and framework of lifecycle assessment (LCA) for the environmental

management of products and services. However, it is somewhat difficult to apply this to structures with

extremely long lifecycles, such as infrastructures and building structures.

The use of concrete, a key construction material, accounts for a particularly large part of the

environmental impacts related to construction projects. If the environmental impacts related to

a concrete structure are accurately dealt with to achieve environmental design, this can enable a

dramatic reduction in the environmental burden for the construction project as a whole and increase

the environmental benefits. Therefore, a method of environmental design specifically for concrete

structures is essential and led to the development of this document.

In the environmental design of a concrete structure, appropriate specifications for materials and

structural details are established based on LCA. ISO 13315-1 stipulates the principles of environmental

consideration for concrete and concrete structures while ISO 13315-2 stipulates the system boundaries

necessary for carrying out LCA and the inventory data to be acquired.

3.4
structural design

design of a structure in which structural performances including safety, serviceability, restorability,

structural integrity and robustness are considered
4 Framework of environmental design

Figure 1 illustrates the positioning of environmental design in the entire design of concrete structures.

The environmental design of a concrete structure shall be carried out integrally with structural design

and durability design and be in harmony with the landscape and surrounding environment.

Environmental design includes client briefing, setting of environmental performance requirements,

design, estimation of retained environmental performances, verification and documentation.
