Envelopes are among the systems that have the largest embodied carbon impact on a building. Traditionally envelope systems and materials are chosen for aesthetics, cost, and operational energy, but embodied carbon is equally important. Learn how to apply embodied carbon strategies when designing your next façade system including strategies for renovating existing buildings, insulation, and selecting cladding materials.

About the BSA Embodied Carbon 101 series
The Embodied Carbon 101 (EC101) series will give AEC professionals foundational embodied carbon knowledge and empower them to incorporate carbon considerations into their work. Rather than attempting to provide all introductory information with a single program, this series educates by impact area, allowing participants to shape their learning experience by opting in to those sessions most relevant to their work. Drawing on the expertise of both local and nationally-recognized practitioners, this series aims to advance carbon-thoughtful practice in Boston and beyond.
