The Embodied Carbon Exchange offers a place for open discussion relating to the day-to-day challenges we face while designing low embodied carbon buildings.

Next Event

Tue October 24, from 12 - 1pm PDT

The Embodied Carbon Exchange is our newest initiative, bring your questions and join us for this bi-monthly group discussion event that connects a diverse range of building industry stakeholders, including architects, structural engineers, developers, manufacturers, policy makers, and sustainability consultants. Our focus is on open-ended, informal discussions about real-world, on-the-ground problems related to reducing embodied carbon in building construction projects.


At the Embodied Carbon Exchange, attendees have the opportunity to ask questions, share their experiences, and learn from one another in a collaborative, supportive environment. All questions welcome, even those that may not have an answer. We believe that by bringing together a variety of perspectives and expertise, we can identify innovative, effective solutions to the complex challenges of reducing embodied carbon in the built environment.
