Carbon Drawdown NOW! – 2 HSW CEUs
September 12 @ 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm
Confronted by the environmental changes of the Global Warming crisis, the window of opportunity for reducing the impact of embodied CO2 equivalents is closing fast. It is now estimated that in order to make a measurable environmental impact, we need to make big changes to the way we approach buildings within the next 12 years.
Since buildings are the largest CO2 equivalents emitter and account for more than 40% of the energy used in the US, we, as building professionals, are the ones that can make a difference.
Jacob Racusin & Ace McArleton, part of the NESEA BuildingEnergy Boston ’19 keynote speech, will examine the theory of embodied carbon emissions and carbon storage in materials. This includes exploring the wide range of carbon storing materials available now and in the future. They will identify strategies that can actually make the buildings part of the solution – not part of the problem.
They offer a positive way to move forward, a very important set of options available to all of us now.
“Carbon Drawdown Now” will help you understand how buildings have the potential to become the world’s fifth largest carbon sink, rather than a leading emitter and more clearly why your work is essential to climate justice and social equity.
