Materials Specifications and the Oft-Ignored Time Value of Carbon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Since organizations like Architecture 2030, AIA, and USGBC have traditionally focused on reducing operational carbon emissions, shifting some of our focus to address the more immediate challenge of embodied carbon requires wide-spread education on the emerging toolbox available to industry professionals.
 
 This session will equip manufacturers, architects, designers, and other building industry professionals with specific and practical strategies for selecting products and materials that reduce embodied carbon emissions and move the industry toward making buildings part of the solution instead of less of the problem. 
 
Learning from experts in climate-friendly design, construction, and product manufacturing, participants will be empowered to ensure that their daily work contributes to creating a balanced climate.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.5 LFA credits
  • 1.5 AIA LU|HSW credits
