Though mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems feature heavily in conversations about operational energy, they are an often-overlooked element in the embodied carbon conversation. Learn how MEP contributes to a project’s overall embodied carbon, including the impacts of systems of different scales and complexity, as well as the effects of MEP replacement cycles.

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.
