About This Program
This course discusses the impact carbon emissions have on the planet and how buildings can influence greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon, to lower embodied carbon through more sustainable building products offering. We will learn about manufacturing transparency and the ability to compare embodied carbon values against a baseline and against similar products, which are critical to reducing embodied carbon.
Acknowledge the major impact that building operations and building products are making on climate change.
Recognize how embodied carbon impacts buildings.
Identify ways that manufacturers are addressing the need for sustainable building products, and the information available to specifiers.
Realize the key role that architects play in driving market change and the adoption of lower carbon building materials.
