Incorporating LCA into your Existing Design Workflow

Join us to learn about LCA, embodied carbon, and the power of architects to make informed improvements with simple, quantitative design tools leading to a more sustainable built environment.

About this course

As the built environment expands, architects hold the key to reducing impacts early on in design decisions, which can have the largest impact. Thanks to evolving technology and increasing adoption, every architectural team can incorporate life cycle analysis (LCA) easily into their existing practice to help the industry reduce its climate impacts
