About Course

Policymakers recognize that significant changes must be made in the built environment if there is hope of achieving carbon reduction targets. States, local jurisdictions, and the federal government are rapidly adopting policies intended to reduce embodied carbon in buildings. Ensuring that the data and methodological approach applied to decarbonization efforts is technically robust is paramount to ensuring our reduction goals are met. This webinar will provide technical data and policy alternatives that can serve as a guide for effective decarbonization policies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare differences between EPDs and WBLCAs
  2. Compare carbon reduction outcomes from EPD and WBLCA models
  3. Review model Buy Clean legislation that can serve as a tool for policy-makers seeking ways to reduce embodied carbon in building projects
  4. Review AWC’s policy priorities as they relate to decarbonizing the built environment.
