An Insider’s Guide to Talking about Carbon Neutral Buildings

The building sector is shifting from decades of regulation and programmatic oriented on energy efficiency (kWh and therms) to governmental plans centered on carbon and greenhouse gas emission reductions (CO2e). While energy and carbon metrics are related, they are not the same. As we transition from discussing energy to include carbon, we need to understand what it means to build a carbon neutral building. This webinar will help align the market around what it means to design, construct, and operate carbon neutral buildings. Presenters will state the importance of reducing energy and carbon emissions and present the differences between zero energy and carbon neutral buildings. Case studies will show the integrated nature of the common components of a carbon neutral building. 1 LU | HSW
