Exploring the basics of embodied carbon

Embodied carbon is one of the most important factors in meeting goals for achieving net-zero. However, it is an inherently complex issue that requires innovative, coordinated and collaborative approaches to make lasting change.

This new course will act as an introduction to embodied carbon for those who are starting their journey to addressing scope three emission or who want to be brought up to speed on the top-line information on what the industry is doing in this space.

Through a series of presentations from speakers, you’ll learn:

  • The fundamentals of embodied carbon
  • Basics of measuring and benchmarking carbon including using a carbon calculator
  • Examples of low carbon materials
  • Shifting business concepts to lower embodied-carbon thinking

** please note that this course is an introduction to embodied carbon and will not cover more advanced information. Attendees who are already familiar with embodied carbon, are looking to expand their knowledge, or have attended this introductory class before should attend our embodied carbon masterclass.
