How to get started with Building Life Cycle Assessment

Building life cycle assessment (or LCA) offers architects, engineers, consultants, developers and contractors with a tool to measure the embodied carbon and other lifetime environmental impacts of their construction projects. It is increasingly mandated by building codes and legislation, as well as being required by green building certification schemes and client demand, as efforts accelerate to cut the environmental impact of construction – currently responsible for 39% of all global CO2 emissions. This 45-minute webinar provides a concise introduction to building LCA. It covers:
  • What’s embodied carbon, why is it important and how is it measured.
  • When and how to perform a building LCA.
  • How to utilize LCA data within existing workflows to assess sustainability as you design.
