Join us online on Wednesday, January 20th from 5 – 7pm for a joint webinar with SEABC and CLF Vancouver. The topic is on structural engineering and embodied carbon.
We have three exciting speakers lined up. All trained as structural engineers and involved in the Leadership Group of the SE 2050 Commitment program, they will discuss how crucial structural engineers are to reducing embodied carbon from our structures. They will also dive deep into how the industry is taking steps to address embodied carbon through the SE 2050 Commitment, case studies and design strategies.
