Currently responsible for 39% of annual global GHG emissions, with 28% of all emissions coming from building operations and 11% coming from building materials & construction, the built environment sector has a vital role to play in addressing the climate emergency. As a result of increases in operational energy efficiency, recent data from the World Green Building Council indicates that the embodied carbon portion of a building’s overall carbon footprint will become increasingly significant.
Join us on February 17th to explore what embodied carbon is, discuss why it matters and where it fits in GRESB’s 5-year roadmap. We’ll also present analytics from the 2021 GRESB Assessment, focusing on where the industry is now and where we have to go.
We’ll be joined by eTool, a software and consultant engineer for Lifecycle Design & Assessments in buildings and infrastructure, to discuss carbon accounting, benchmarking, and setting reduction targets.
