AIACV: Transforming How We Build: Embodied Carbon of Building Materials
SMUD+ AIACV bring you this year-long series dedicated to high performance,regenerative design. The presentation will cover carbon neutral and net zero architecture, social equity and other innovations that transform ideas and processes to address climate change.
Embodied carbon, the emissions from making the materials of our built environment, is a larger source of global warming than we thought. And getting to zero by 2050 to avert our 1.5-degree tipping point means reducing embodied carbon is more urgent than ever. Luckily many of the tools and resources are here to tackle embodied carbon head on, but they aren’t widely used or understood by the building community. This session will get you started.
