The 2030 Challenge: Reducing the Carbon Impact from Building Products

March 27, 2012 8:30 - 9:30 am San Francisco / 11:30 - 12:30 pm New York / 4:30 5:30 pm Paris and Frankfurt

Buildings are the major source of global demand for energy and materials that produce by-product greenhouse gases (GHG). The raw resource extraction, manufacturing, transportation, construction, usage, and end-of-life stages of building products each generate significant GHG emissions. Slowing the growth rate of GHG emissions and then reversing it is the key to addressing climate change and keeping global average temperature below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

To accomplish this, Architecture 2030 issued The 2030 Challenge for Products asking the global architecture, planning, design, and building community to adopt building products specifications that can achieve a 50% or higher carbon footprint reduction by 2030.

Join Architecture 2030's Francesca Desmarais who will present an overview of the vision and strategy of the Challenge, how to become an adopter, the development of benchmarks, and current progress of the Challenge.
