This course focuses on how both operational and embodied carbon must be considered to achieve rapid, Statewide decarbonization in the building sector. Avideh Haghighi, AIA, LFA, LEED GA discusses the time value of carbon emissions associated with construction, why we need to reduce embodied carbon in the next decade, and design strategies and tools for measuring and reducing embodied carbon.

Larry Strain, FAIA, LEED AP, then delves deeper into operational carbon and discusses reuse and renovation in the context of reducing both embodied and operational carbon. Course takers will develop a better understanding of how building renovation and reuse, coupled with reducing embodied and operational carbon, strengthens neighborhoods, maintains diversity, builds equity, increases resilience, and improves thermal comfort and health.

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.

This course has English language captions.
