The topics will cover the basic of operational and embodied carbon, the importance of eliminating our carbon emissions, and ways we as architects and designers can limit carbon emissions, and start to create buildings that are Carbon Positive (or better than carbon neutral). Following the road map presented by Edward Mazria, electrification, policy solutions, existing buildings, and new buildings. For reducing the embodied carbon of new buildings concrete, steel, and mass timber are all discussed.
