This webinar, the first in a 4-part CALGreen Embodied Carbon joint educational program between the SEAOC Sustainable Design Committee and AIA California, addresses the green building code changes adopted by the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) on August 2, 2023, focusing on reducing embodied carbon emissions in large-scale building construction projects. Understanding these changes is crucial, as compliance becomes mandatory starting July 1, 2024.

In this introductory program, experts from the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and New Buildings Institute (NBI) focus on the compliance pathways and requirements essential for industry professionals. They offer a detailed overview of the regulations related to embodied carbon and insights into the future development of California’s state code. The webinar also includes a segment on resources available to assist professionals in adapting to these changes. Participants will develop a clear understanding of the concept of embodied carbon and its impact on climate change. They will also learn about the progression of embodied carbon policies leading to the adoption of state-level codes and gain an in-depth understanding of the 2022 California Green Building Standards Code amendments. Finally, the webinar will provide strategies for effectively adhering to and excelling under these new standards in various projects.

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.
