Webinar: Building Life Cycle Impact
Event Description

The carbon impact of building materials is a critical factor in our planet’s future. Life cycle assessments (LCAs) can benefit designers and manufacturers while achieving the goals of green building and environmental standards. Join us to learn about the increasing importance of LCAs as well as the tools, methodologies, and essential components of conducting a LCA. This empowering session will show designers how to find viable alternatives to material selections and system assemblies and reduce negative impacts on our environment.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn the increasing importance of accounting for the life cycle impacts of building materials in order to achieve an environmentally sustainable carbon neutral future.

2. Become familiar with available and upcoming tools and methodologies for conducting a green building life cycle assessment.

3. Identify the essential components of an accurate, informative, and useful assessment.

4. Discuss how life cycle assessments can benefit designers and manufacturers while achieving the goals of green building and other environmental movements and standards.
