This course is presented FREE courtesy of AIA California throughout 2023 as part of its commitment to help design professionals lower the carbon footprint, and meets the requirements for continuing education coursework in Zero Net Carbon Design (ZNCD) for California architecture license renewals. Simply sign in and register for the course.

This course, the first in a 3-part series in partnership with the Carbon Leadership Forum, guides viewers through core concepts of carbon analysis and defines commonly used and often misunderstood terms such as embodied carbon, whole-life carbon, and zero carbon. Course takers will develop a foundational understanding of the built environment’s contribution to global climate change, increase their carbon literacy, and be better positioned to embody carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated over the full life cycle of a building.

Upon successful completion of a multiple-choice quiz, a Certificate of Completion will be available for download and can be used to verify your licensure requirements.
