Measuring Impact: Approaches to Tracking Our Carbon Footprint

11/04/2015 - 14:30 to 16:00
2:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Room/Location: Oak Room

As we work towards the goal of being Social Responsible businesses, how do we measure our larger impacts on the planet? We’ll hear from four design/build businesses who are taking a hard look at what they’re measuring, why, and learn how it is influencing their business decisions, their day-to-day work, and the performance of their built projects. We’ll discuss issues such as waste reduction, post-occupancy energy tracking of projects, embodied energy of materials, employee transportation. We’ll talk about how they track their data and also share it with employees and customers. Participants will understand how to create stronger businesses within the framework of social responsibility and will know what metrics to consider tracking in their own businesses to measure their own business’ carbon footprint.
