Embodied Carbon Bootcamp

Embodied carbon accounts for an increasingly large proportion of carbon emissions from new buildings before construction is finalized. Policymakers are considering low embodied carbon policies to meet their GHG emission reduction targets. And the industry is rapidly improving its understanding and response to embodied carbon with new products, practices, tools, and projects.

In this interactive workshop, industry leaders will present the policies that are quickening the adoption of embodied carbon ideas and show the steps necessary to lower upfront and whole life carbon emissions in new construction and major renovations. Activities will support low carbon materials and alternative product selection, and the processes used by successful teams. It will introduce the latest design and data tools available, present case studies, and engage participants in facilitated discussions around designing lower embodied carbon projects. Attendees will leave the workshop with a toolkit of resources to aid their future projects.
