Our schools, libraries, parks, community centers and other public spaces are essential projects for our communities to meet climate action plan objectives. These projects represent an opportunity to address embodied carbon inputs from our buildings that can serve as highly visible models for citizens to address emissions in their daily lives. While new construction represents an obvious opportunity to address embodied carbon, municipalities and the Architecture and Engineering community can work together to address embodied carbon requirements to RFP’s, bid documents, and procurement guidelines for all projects.

This discussion will feature guest speakers who are working to address embodied carbon in public work. This session will provide a forum discussion which will attempt to identify objectives for the ideal public process; where opportunities to do better on embodied carbon are present for all public projects.

This session is for all who intersect in the public project realm: architects, contractors, municipal staff, and others who construct, renovate, and maintain our public areas.
