“Net Zero” has been a goal of the green building movement, to have every building generate at least as much energy as it uses. Enormous progress has been made in recent years to improve the performance of new buildings, and in renovating existing buildings to improve their energy performance.
Join the Smart Growth Network as Bruce King and Chris Magwood provide a roadmap for re-envisioning the built environment by turning buildings into sites of net carbon storage.
Date: Tuesday June 21, 2022
Time: 11:15 AM – 12:45 PM Pacific Time
King and Magwood will discuss the importance of examining which components, from concrete to solar photovoltaics, go into creating a climate-friendly building and why it is important to address carbon emissions during the entire lifecycle of a building, from the materials used for construction to the supply chains delivering products to job sites.
