Webinar: Embodied Carbon Matters

Between 2020 and 2050, the carbon embodied in building materials is expected to be 49% of the total new construction carbon emissions. Considering carbon during the entire life cycle of buildings and their constituent materials is thus a vitally important task in reducing global climate change. Speakers will provide an overview of considerations related to embodied carbon in building materials, strategies for selecting lower-carbon materials, and emerging ideas about an embodied carbon marketplace.
