Embodied carbon (kgCO2e) is the carbon released from the total primary energy consumed during resource extraction, transportation, manufacturing, and product fabrication. Implementing data-driven solutions to better analyze their projects' carbon impact is a rapidly growing aspect of renovation projects. In this 60-minute session, we will showcase the workflow for your next project with embodied carbon and operational carbon and outline various methods through case studies on how to reach net-zero carbon.
