Best Practices: Tools to Help Meet Your Sustainability Goals
Aug 10, 2:55 - 3:55 pm ET
Join USGBC, One Click LCA, Cerclos and Autocase as they evaluate tools and practices used to vet the embodied and operational carbon at the early planning and conceptual design stage. This session will highlight how important tools can be used to design for carbon reductions with a focus on the triple bottom line. We will discuss practical examples that will offer insight into tools that can support informing building design and how these tools support achieving several LEED credits.
GBCI credit: Approved for LEED specific BD+C, Green Associate.
- List the benefits of completing a Life-Cycle Analysis and Triple Bottom Line Analysis on your LEED v4 BD+C v4 project early in the design phase to optimize performance and reduce climate impacts
- Compare available LCA tools and how they can support earning LEED credits
- Discuss how EPDs inform the decision-making process on projects and how they become integrated into tools for designers
- Discuss the business case and economic benefits of using these tools to better inform design
