Embodied Carbon Matters

An Austin Energy Green Building Event

Webinar Details

carbon emissions from building site

Between 2020 and 2050, the carbon embodied in building materials is expected to be 49% of 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.
