Embodied Carbon: Deeper Decarbonization of the Built Environment

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) allocates billions of dollars toward low-embodied carbon material procurement, documentation, and labeling as new policies seek low-carbon solutions. As materials and construction account for 11% of global carbon emissions, the building community must reduce this carbon source across the supply chain to achieve a low carbon future.

This session covers embodied carbon basics, provides up-to-date information on embodied carbon codes and policies in California and beyond, and showcases perspectives from manufacturing and case studies from building design professionals. Speakers will examine how materials manufacturers are planning to reach carbon neutrality, and what decisions are designers making to meet embodied carbon policies? These actionable lessons will empower designers, manufacturers, policymakers, and building owners to curb embodied carbon in the building industry and prepare for codes and policies
