Event description
This workshop integrates key metrics & processes on embodied carbon into the design process & documents the latest solutions.

About this Event

For this critical decade of climate action, Canada must work collectively to lower carbon emissions in order to meet the country’s global commitments. The building industry is responsible for 17 per cent of all GHG emissions – but that number can be as high as 30 per cent if one accounts for embodied carbon from construction materials and processes. The event will introduce the latest industry facts on embodied carbon, explore emerging material strategies and technologies for reductions, and begin to assess how industry can mitigate embodied carbon through the design process.

The morning will feature a presentation of the newly launched version two of Zero Carbon Building Standard which introduces greater flexibility to support the goal of transforming all buildings to zero carbon while ensuring higher performance by raising the bar on key metrics, including embodied carbon, energy efficiency, and innovation. Experts from the Embodied Carbon Network (ECN) Vancouver will discuss the integration of key metrics and processes on embodied carbon into the design process, as well as the latest solutions, challenges and future work to advance this topic. Through a collaboration with ZEBx and CleanBC, highlights from BC’s NZER Challenge winning projects will be showcased and position these trending topics within local context.

The 3.5-hour event will include educational presentations, facilitated workshop sessions and networking opportunities.

More details to follow.

This event is in partnership with Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), ECN Vancouver and ZEBx.

About ZEBx's CleanBC NZER Challenge Workshop Series

The “CleanBC Net-Zero Energy Ready Challenge: Workshop Series” consists of six unique workshops over nine deliveries that will run throughout 2020 with the objective to more rapidly advance solutions for zero emission buildings. Through the lens of BC’s most recently celebrated projects that are achieving the highest levels of the BC Energy Step Code and beyond (including Passive House, Canada Green Building Council’s (CaGBC) Zero Carbon Building Standard, LEED, and City of Vancouver Rezoning), participants will work with leading experts across industry silos to identify and advance emerging solutions as well as identify key barriers for scaling adoption.
