Event description
Can specifications reverse global warming? Learn how embodied carbon in building materials can have a measureable impact on your projects.

About this Event

Breakfast will be offered at St. Kilda (Temple location- 1013 Locust St.) starting at 8:30. You can easily walk across the courtyard into the library afterwards. We would love to see you there!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define embodied carbon and be able to talk about it with suppliers.
  2. Give examples from each of the (4) pillars of the framework.
  3. Think of specific opportunity for engaging with each of the Climate Take Back pillars.
  4. Understand carbon smart building operational efficiency.

Summary:

According to research conducted by Interface and Net Impact, 95% of climate experts believe that it is possible to reverse global warming and 91% of young leaders agree. The reason that both think it is possible is because we have everything we need, and both think the only thing that stands in our way is business as usual. Last year, the most comprehensive guide to reversing global warming was introduced by Paul Hawken enitiled Drawdown followed by Bruce King's The New Carbon Architecture. Interface's "Climate Take Back" plan offers and easy-to-understand framework which can be understood, adopted, and implemented by any organization. The research and the framework will be provided to all participants.
