With rapidly changing policies and technologies across the built environment, leaders in the industry are looking for guidance on how to include embodied carbon in their journey to net zero. Over the lifetime of a building, embodied carbon from materials and construction can account for half of a building’s carbon emissions. This leads to the urgent need to address embodied carbon now, as global building floor area is expected to double by 2060. Plus, as global momentum builds for climate action, federal state and local governments have increasingly introduced building-sector requirements covering everything from carbon emissions and energy use to green building certifications and climate resilience. This 2.5-hour event will consist of educational presentations about embodied carbon reduction including case studies, an embodied carbon policy overview and an overview of industry tools. The second half of this event will be dedicated to round table discussions among attendees about myths, misconceptions and strategies around embodied carbon. Attendees will have dedicated time to network and ask questions of presenters.
