Presentation Overview:

Emission Omissions: Carbon Accounting Gaps in the Built Environment

Adam Auer, Vice President of Environment & Sustainability with the Cement Association of Canada, discusses why “embodied carbon” is becoming more important as buildings become more efficient and the role that the cement and concrete industry is playing to reduce GHG emissions. He also discusses novel research on lifecycle assessment of building materials – its strengths and weaknesses – and what it means for how we understand the carbon footprint of building materials.
