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.

2021-07-13T17:00:00Z CLF Minnesota: Tally / EC3 Demo from Building Transparency


mindfulMaterials/Building Transparency/ULI || Owning It: Real Estate Commitments to Transformative Materials Action

Real estate leaders share their individual and collective commitments and action to address the embodied impacts of building materials.

It’s time for owners to own their powerful role in transforming the materials economy. Mindful MATERIALS, the Urban Land Institute, and Building Transparency are joining forces with real estate leaders to dig in on the critical importance of improving materials selections holistically, and discuss how this growing community is specifically addressing Embodied Carbon. Come hear from Tishman Speyer, Hudson Pacific, and Skanska Real Estate Development, and their leaders in sustainability. They’ll share their vision, goals and share case studies of implementation and success in measurably reducing the impact of the built environment through mindful materials selection.



Join the CLF community to talk about biogenic materials in buildings! This happy hour builds off of our last webinar focused on the same topic. Here’s the link to register and you can find the last webinar recording here

CLF 10 Minutes of Brilliance Webinar
Register here

Building off of past 3-minute moments of brilliance presentations co-hosted by the CLF hubs in New York and LA, join us for three BRILLIANT 10-minute presentations covering the following topics:

Luke Lombardi (@Luke-Lombardi) and Emma Reif (@ereif) will present “Conserving Carbon Assets through Resilient Thinking” a brief look into reframing the embodied carbon challenge with a lens toward protecting and preserving our building stock that is vulnerable to natural hazards.

Catherine Paplin (@cpaplin) will present “Climate salvation through building salvage,” covering how key policy and practice changes could effect radical, immediate carbon emissions reductions by prioritizing building preservation and reuse over new construction.

And Walter Cain (@waltercain) will share “Reusing Building Materials: from Obligation to Opportunity” Reusing salvaged materials is an effective strategy for designers obliged to minimize embodied energy in construction projects, but these materials also present opportunities for innovative design.


Metropolis will be launching their interior designer climate toolkit focused on embodied carbon this August 31 at 3:30 ET/12:30 PT!

You’re invited to join a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Research and Development webinar on the U.S. EPA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) – Phase I findings of industry-leading, natural building experts, Verdant Structural Engineers, on Carbon-Storing Structurally Insulated Panels and Q&A! Please feel free to share this invitation with others.

Biogenic materials have the potential to store notable amounts of carbon in the built environment. Learn how VSE is including agricultural byproducts in prefabricated structural wall panels that blend easily with thickness, weight, construction, cost, performance and code compliance needs. Through the support of the EPA SBIR program, this product aims to achieve wide scale adoption in the conventional residential and mid-rise commercial markets in the US.
