Join us for the Embodied Carbon Summit on May 21!

Join us for the first annual Embodied Carbon Summit on May 21, 2024!

A new Embodied Carbon Summit will be held the day before the Getting to Zero Forum. The Summit includes a networking reception, and two half-day workshops that feature opportunities for design building professionals to understand the embodied carbon landscape. Join industry leaders and executives to work together and advance efforts for getting to zero embodied carbon emissions.


May 20: Networking Reception

4:30 – 6 p.m. More details coming soon!


May 21:  Half-day 201 Level Workshop
Demystifying Embodied Carbon Policy & How to Leverage Decarbonization Policy Compliance Tools

Embodied carbon is responsible for 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions, representing a significant opportunity for achieving carbon reduction commitments and net-zero goals. With interest from the private and public sectors alike, there has never been a better – or more important time – for the AEC sector to get smart on the emissions type and learn about effective strategies for decarbonization.

This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of embodied carbon policy, introduce them to existing tools used for policy compliance including BEAM, OneClick LCA, tallyLCA and EC3, and provide an overview of the skills needed to effectively use them. The workshop will guide participants through the application of these tools for compliance with various existing embodied carbon or Buy Clean policies globally.

Speakers and agenda details will be announced soon!

Time: 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Cost: $150

May 21: Half-day Executive Summit, By Invitation Only
Whole Life Carbon Leadership Summit on Transformational U.S. Building Policy 

In this dynamic workshop, invited participants will have the unique opportunity to engage with other industry experts in candid discussions on critical aspects of long-term policy casting and actions. Participants will be encouraged to think beyond today’s early traction and momentum on embodied carbon to chart a path towards more radical reductions to achieve net zero buildings. This quick-paced and interactive workshop will navigate through the diverse building design and construction levers to drive transformational change. Attendees will also participate in developing a networking tool to visualize the landscape of experts working on ambitious embodied carbon reduction strategies and policies and identify points of overlap and potential opportunities for collaboration. This strategic prioritization of policy levers will inform future action. Join this collaborative effort to explore, strategize, and contribute to the transition towards net zero whole life carbon buildings. Together, we can make a lasting impact, paving the way for a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future. This is an invite-only event for design and construction industry leaders, government officials, and NGOs.

Speakers and agenda details will be announced soon!
