2021 Getting to Zero Forum - IN PERSON!

The Getting to Zero Forum is the premier event dedicated to zero energy and zero carbon buildings. It brings together the world’s leading experts in creating the market-based solutions that are driving a growing movement to define the future of the built environment. It is the only event with a broad cross-section of stakeholders focused on ambitious building efficiency goals and is an ideal venue for organizing both the policy and building communities to achieve zero carbon ambitions. The 2021 Forum will attract more than 800 leading policymakers, design professionals, building owners, systems manufacturers, and commercial real estate experts.

On October 27-29, participants will share perspectives on the growth of zero energy and zero carbon, learn about best practices for successful projects, and collaborate on opportunities for zero energy and zero carbon to transform the built environment.

CLF Omaha - Inaugural presentation: An overview of LCA as a practice, examples of reduction strategies for specific materials, and guest speaker from AIA-Nebraska.

May 5th, 2021 12pm - 1pm
Invite: Join Zoom Meeting

This looks like an awesome event! Do you happen to know if it will be recorded or shared afterward for folks in the US who probably can’t make that time?

CLF Alberta: “Reducing Embodied Carbon in Construction with EC3” with Phil Northcott.

Phil Northcott is CEO of C-Change Labs and the co-creator of EC3. Originally an electrical engineer, Phil founded C Change Labs in 2017 to bring the power of cloud computing to the fight against climate change. C-Change labs works closely with the nonprofit BuildingTransparency.org, construction professionals, industry leaders, and building owners to build up the ecosystem of science-based, open access information about the climate impacts of materials.

C40 Webinar - Planning for Low Carbon Urban Development - Building Typologies and their Emission Profiles

With a presentation from
Christopher Drew
Director of Sustainability, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects

and

Xi Yi
Senior Urban Designer, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects

Does an ideal climate-optimised building typology exist? How can we promote and balance the best quality of life at the lowest carbon footprint? The Architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects has endeavoured to answer some of these questions and has compiled years of research into the intersection of density and carbon impacts into their book Residenisty . The book investigates how much land, infrastructure and carbon – both embodied and operational – is required to support 2,000 residences for nine different building typologies leading to some interesting conclusions about how we might develop our cities to meet our climate goals.

In this webinar Christopher Drew and Xi Yi from Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects will be discussing how a variety of building typologies perform on different carbon metrics - especially embodied carbon - and how cities can apply these learnings to their planning practices.

Please register in advance of the webinar, you will receive an email with the link to the event.

CLF Boston || Impact Series || Renovation/Preservation

In this session, presenters will introduce key themes, strategies, and considerations that build upon topics from the Embodied Carbon 101 series, applying them to Preservation and Reuse Projects. Going beyond those, presenters will introduce emerging conversations around the time-value of carbon and the Reuse- and Preservation-first design strategies that address this critical issue.

Presenters:
Lori Ferris AIA, PE, LEED AP BD+C
Goody Clancy

George Gard AIA
Bruner/Cott & Associates


The CLF Boston Impact Series is a forum-based opportunity to engage with key stakeholders working to address embodied carbon in their buildings. Each session is focused on a particular sector or building typology in order to address their unique opportunities & challenges.

CLF Boston || Impact Series || Carbon in the Landscape

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. 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.

Presenters:
Pamela Conrad
CMG Landscape Architecture

Rachel Loeffler
Berkshire Design Group

John McMeeking

CLF Boston || Impact Series || Embodied Carbon and Interiors

Discussions around embodied carbon often focuses on structure and envelope, but the reality is that many projects involve the renovation or build out of interior spaces, and the cumulative impact of interiors over time, by some estimates, will exceed that of the base building. This session will engage practitioners and owners of interiors scope to discuss to talk about the opportunities and obstacles for doing better on interior projects and procurement.

CLF Boston || Impact Series || Highly Controlled Spaces–Embodied Carbon in Science, Tech and Healthcare

Healthcare and Science & Technology spaces and buildings demand specific and unique performance criteria to support the challenges of scientific study needs, material safety and occupant health and safety. Solutions to criteria like vibration control and high air-changes involve additional material which likely results in additional embodied carbon. Join us for a discussion to explore these and other challenges within this sector and building-type, with a goal of identifying opportunities and related action items to move forward with carbon reductions.
