The introductory training on Decarbonized Construction delves into the basics of low-carbon construction, and how the industry can shift its practices to meet climate goals. The training covers key terms and concepts such as life cycle assessment and whole life carbon, as well as examining the factors that drive decarbonization. We will also discuss the collaboration that is needed to shift to new, less carbon-intensive actions in the whole value chain from product manufacturing to design, construction, and use.
