Embodied carbon has become a hot topic in green building design, construction, and operations. But how do you measure carbon in the building? What steps can each discipline take to improve the overall carbon footprint of a building? Join us for a deep dive into how embodied is defined versus how it is generally understood in the industry. We will also look at ways designers, contractors, and operators can better track their projects’ carbon impact.
-Explain the mismatch between the definition of embodied carbon and how “embodied carbon” is currently understood within the green building industry.
-Describe the different phases of carbon within a commercial building.
-Understand our current system of tracking types of carbon and what changes are coming to the green building industry.
