As the importance of efforts to reduce carbon emission from buildings is increasing throughout the world, the plans for carbon reduction during the life cycle of a building are being considered from various angles. Carbon emission, accordingly, is also on the increase by the housing sector. Efforts to minimize carbon emission through consideration to overall energy consumption of a building and reasonable environmental impact evaluation are required. This study, based on evaluation between a modular and a RC apartment housing, has analyzed the emission of carbon. The analysis was carried out on the reduced amount of carbon emission and the subsequent environmental impact according to energy saving from the stages of materials production, construction, operation, disposal and recycling for each housing. This study aims at proposing the expected benefits of material and energy saving in buildings and the plans to reduce carbon emission from green buildings market.
