Building operational energy, mobility energy, and materials embodied energy contribute to a significant portion of the global greenhouse such as Data centres consume high levels of energy to power the IT equipment contained within them, and extract the heat they produce.This paper explores the embodied and operational carbon for data center. This research propose a framework to facilitate the quantification of the carbon footprint of the building environment. In conclusion, building LCA(Life Cycle Assessment) is an essential tool for assessing the environmental impacts of buildings throughout their entire life cycle. It shows that concrete slab and PIR insulation has the highest environmental impact while gypsum boord sandwich panesls has the lowest. Furthermore, except for GWP (Global Warming Potential), construction materials cause other environmental impacts. Therefore other environmental impact indicators are also crucial for evaluation through LCA stages.
