BSA/AIA – Embodied Carbon in Buildings Conference

May 31 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

This conference by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA is in partnership with Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Massive volumes of carbon emissions are tied to building materials and construction. The time for AEC professionals to talk carbon is now. Come to learn from leading-edge practitioners and researchers as they investigate the impacts and opportunities of materials and products, and share strategies for realizing carbon-thoughtful design. Leave with literacy on the issues of embodied carbon and implementable approaches for forward-looking practice.
