KEYNOTE: Efforts to Decarbonize Building Sector are Scaling – Here’s Why and How Your Company Can Respond

The built environment industry is beginning to understand its collective environmental impact on a larger scale. There is an increased focus on reducing the carbon impact of built spaces, especially as building owners establish their own climate targets and architects and engineers set reduction goals for their projects. Beyond the industry itself, policymakers on the local, state, federal and global levels have started to establish or pass Buy Clean bills and other low-carbon procurement policies.

During this session, Stacy Smedley, Executive Director of the nonprofit Building Transparency, will discuss the growing interest in decarbonization and how the built environment industry can support the mission. Smedley will provide actionable insight about tools and resources that can facilitate sustainability-driven changes to current processes and practices. Attendees will walk away with clearer understanding about the decarbonization effort and tangible methods to meet their carbon reduction goals.
