Session Abstract

Transparency and reporting are critical first steps in catalyzing a positive impact on climate change, allowing us to set goals and track progress to evaluate what strategies are working, leading to adoption of these approaches.
 
This keynote session will take a look at the current state of carbon emissions data, transparency and reporting as it relates to the construction industry, and efforts to create positive impacts by focusing on reducing embodied carbon in the sector.
 
Join Stacy as she highlights the importance of climate-related reporting and investment to create a positive impact on the construction industry, and speak to the need for smart tools for low-carbon concrete procurement and awareness. She will provide insight into data, policy and awareness efforts to help architects, designers and contractors select low carbon materials during the design and procurement project phases.
