OVERVIEW:

In this webinar, David explains how we need to pursue a restorative, bio-based approach to assist in taking existing carbon impacts out of buildings. Focus on carbon reduction in the building industry to avoid climate change needs to be a lot more urgent and product selection is key.

  • Examine building products certified for carbon impacts using a whole of life, sustainability, rating system that provides a CabonRATE assessment scheme to further Net Positive and Net Carbon Zero product outcomes.
  • Learn where to bring carbon-reduced products into projects using rating tools, including LEED, Green Star and market ready carbon calculation support like  EPDs, GreenBook, eTool, EC3, Athena, OneClick LCA, Revit's Tally and BRE's Impact.
