Site design professionals play a critical role in helping to reduce the embodied (and operational) carbon in the landscape. The landscape has an innate ability to naturally sequester carbon from the atmosphere, and even small design choices can result in significant carbon reductions. By asking the challenging questions from the outset of the project, a logical path can be developed to ensure the early integration of low-carbon design strategies [What is the primary use of the space? To what extent are hardscape materials needed? How and where are the materials made? Where are the plant materials being grown and transported from? Can any of the design elements be recycled in the future?]. This session will examine ways to take a holistic approach to site design and will review carbon tracking/calculating with the intent of creating a more sustainable and ecologically sensitive built environment. The intent is for this to be a collaborative and open discussion, so all ideas are welcome.
