Championing sustainability in the AEC industry isn’t just a choice; it’s the key to unlocking a future where we conquer embodied carbon and realize our shared vision of a carbon-neutral world. Sustainable construction is a holistic approach that considers the entire lifecycle of a structure in economic, ecological, and social terms. This entails efficient planning, minimizing energy and resource consumption, and maximizing environmental compatibility through the use of suitable materials.

What does RIB offer?

RIB’s fit-for-purpose industry-leading software delivers a complete solution designed to cater to every stage of your AEC industry project

RIB 4.0

RIB 4.0 supports sustainability in construction from planning right through to execution via 6D modeling and interconnected processes, optimized material usage, reduced waste, and shortened transportation routes. It promotes sustainable actions through variant studies and simulations, and sustainable processes through BIM material documentation. RIB 4.0 also enables the calculation and quantification of CO2 values for resources.

By digitizing every aspect of a building’s lifecycle, RIB 4.0 ensures projects are not only completed within budget and on schedule but also uphold high-quality standards, while significantly reducing your carbon footprint.

  1. Variant studies and simulations unlock short- and long-term sustainability opportunities
  2. BIM material documentation in reliable as-built models for dismantling and cradle-to-cradle processes
  3. Calculation and quantification of the CO2 values of utilized resources.

RIB 4.0


RIB CostX allows for both cost estimating and embodied carbon accounting. It creates a world-leading 6D BIM solution, enabling quantity surveyors and estimating businesses to lead the way in sustainability.

RIB CostX lets users estimate embodied carbon across the entire building lifecycle including operation, maintenance & end of life phases. As well as calculating the projects total carbon output, the proportion that each component contributes to this can also be determined.

  1. Compare baseline estimated embodied carbon to actual as-built totals based on real supplier EPDs to show carbon reductions
  2. Present customized reports with carbon and cost in a wide variety of formats and styles tailored to your corporate standard
  3. Support data from various sources including Building Transparency’s EC3 library.
