Embodied Carbon and Sustainability: Actionable Steps for your Projects

NCSEA's Sustainable Design Committee is proud to deliver a new webinar series – Embodied Carbon and Sustainability: Actionable Steps for Your Projects – presented by some of the industry’s best and brightest minds. In this series, attendees will unlock actionable steps for better sustainability and embodied carbon results in their projects. Attendees will dive into the world of building materials. Each presentation focuses on a specific building material (concrete, wood, and steel) and offers tangible solutions and real-life examples to reduce the environmental impact of that material. Attendees will gain insights from a diverse panel including engineers, material suppliers, and industry experts, ensuring a comprehensive discussion on sustainable practices.

The registration fee for the Seminar is $99 for members ($199 for nonmembers), which includes all 4.5 hours of education. Each individual webinar can be purchased separately for $50 for members ($100 for nonmembers).
  • Purchase all 3 webinars in the Seminar and have access to the recordings for 1 Year.
  • Each seminar purchase is per office location. If your firm is operating remotely, contact NCSEA at on how to accommodate multiple users from the same location.
