This webinar, the second 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.

This second session focuses on implementation of the Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment (WBLCA) compliance pathway. Industry experts cover basic practices, available tools and resources, and practical considerations for practitioners and provide practical case study examples. Topics range from an introduction to the fundamentals of WBLCA, essential practices in material quantity takeoffs and application of environmental product declarations, compliance tools and resources, setting an effective baseline, and the landscape of common reduction strategies.

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.
