Zero Carbon Accelerator: Tips & Tools to Decarbonize Your Building

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As climate action becomes more urgent, there is a growing focus on embodied carbon within the built environment. The International Living Future Institute’s Zero Carbon Certification program specifically measures this action, recognizing projects that decarbonize both operational and embodied carbon. This 2-hour workshop is designed to inform and empower those who are ready to join the movement towards decarbonizing the built environment with ILFI.
 In this workshop, we’ll help you build a detailed understanding of the context and application of the program – achieving zero operational and embodied carbon. We’ll explore examples of the leading-edge approaches and carbon assessment tools being utilized by teams across the globe to achieve ambitious climate action goals. We’ll also share a summary of trends in industry research and policies that support the accelerated adoption of Zero Carbon development at scale. You’ll leave with the technical understanding and ownership of the value statements for Zero Carbon so that you may pursue this goal on your next project.

  • Identify the core elements and requirements of the Zero Carbon Certification program, and how they address the pathways to building energy and materials decarbonization
  • Discover low-carbon design strategies and tools that are used to measure both operational and embodied emissions
  • Recognize the value of a Zero Carbon building and how to communicate this value proposition to property owners or developers
  • Gain a broad understanding of the industry trends and policies that are supporting the accelerated adoption of Zero Carbon development
