Solving for the 11% embodied carbon in the built environment
Webinar / June 25, 2021 / Building Innovation
As clean energy policy and practice ratchet down operational carbon emissions in the built environment, embodied carbon becomes a larger share of buildings’ carbon footprint. In this webinar, participants will learn about primary sources of carbon embedded in the manufacturing processes, and approaches on low-carbon material selection including cost analysis that shows how even deep energy and carbon retrofits can make financial sense. In addition, presenters will use case studies to share a method using lifecycle carbon as a means to intertwine embodied and operational carbon into a cumulative timeline. 1.25 AIA LU|HSW credits pending.
