Join our Workshop on Embodied Carbon on March 18, 9:00am-12pm!
This workshop is part of TRANSFORM conference organised by the Green Building Council of Australia
Is embodied carbon the new hotspot when designing buildings for a low carbon economy? As the
use of our buildings becomes more energy and carbon efficient, the role of materials increases. Future
rating systems will therefore require a reduction of embodied carbon. In this interactive workshop we
will use a mix of case studies and hands on activities to get a better understanding of embodied carbon.
We will explore the following questions:
- How to identify reliable emission factors?
- How to interpret embodied carbon information?
- Which standards are relevant?
- What is the relationship between EPDs, LCA and embodied carbon?
