Understanding Your Project’s Carbon Footprint

Aired on March 15

The Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator provides you with the ability to assess embodied carbon emissions through a project’s lifecycle. The analysis looks at individual materials, a project’s lifecycle stages, and benchmarks for set targets.

During the webinar, attendees will hear of standards, guidance, and legislation that drive the embodied carbon to the front of the sustainable construction conversation. Stefanovic will demonstrate assessing the carbon footprint of a design with built-in tools that enable regular evaluations during the design process. With the Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator, you’ll have the power to gather metrics and make informed decisions as you look to achieve carbon-reducing targets.

This course is approved for one AIA HSW LU.
