Decarbonizing the Built Environment
Decarbonizing the Built Environment Day 1
As the urgency to address climate change and halt greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) continues to grow, designers have a responsibility to make smart design decisions to minimize their buildings’ GHG emissions. The steps to designing a carbon-smart building are two-fold: minimize embodied carbon and bring operational carbon to zero. This two-day, three-part webinar course will look at the holistic carbon profile of the built environment and the cutting-edge tools, processes, and case studies that design teams can use to design carbon out of their projects.
This first part will take a holistic view of carbon drivers in the built environment. The first part in the series will set the stage for the next two parts, outlining key definitions and drivers and presenting a path towards carbon neutral design. Through case studies we'll explore holistic carbon on recent projects and areas where designers can have the most significant influence.
