Pratt Institute's Housing Consortium has organized a Decarbonization Symposium for Earth Day 2022 (4/22/2022) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The Decarbonization Symposium celebrates the release of the Housing Consortium's Housing in New York City In the Context of Carbon, Climate, and Social Justice, a compendium that includes two decarbonization policy briefs (NYC Local Law 97 and Mass Timber in NYC). Building on this effort, the Decarbonization Working Group has convened a series of panelists to critically expand on these topics and to offer informative and innovative perspectives.
The Decarbonization Symposium will be a deep dive into the challenges and opportunities of decarbonization of the built environment - with a special focus on efforts to reduce embodied and operational carbon emissions in New York City.
Participants will learn about the challenges of understanding embodied carbon in building materials and products - and why we must prioritize the reduction of embodied carbon emissions now, rather than merely focusing on lowering operational emissions. Specifically, the panel will address:
Participants will be able to apply this knowledge when planning, designing or developing sustainable new projects that can meet or exceed 2030/2050 carbon-neutral GHG emission goals.
The Decarbonization Symposium, (free), April 22, 2022 - 9 a.m to 12:00 p.m. will be held via zoom:
