Climate Action for Engineers, September 14 in Albany NY
Event Description

Engineers can play a very significant, even vital, role in mitigating the effects of climate change. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our projects can have other significant benefits as well, including economic and health improvements. For most engineers, this is a brand-new design parameter. This will look at global and project-based quantification of CO2-e (that’s carbon dioxide and other global warming gases, measured as CO2 equivalent by weight) emissions, and review a variety of strategies to reduce these emissions that can be implemented immediately. A primary focus will be on practical cost-effective and revenue-neutral actions. This will also look at large-scale long-term strategies and consideration of the potential economic benefits if a fee or tax on CO2-e emissions per ton is adopted as a national policy.
