A Revolution in Embodied Carbon: Four Pivotal Materials

Learn about the "Fab Four" top embodied carbon materials and how we can reduce their environmental impact. The Federal Government is focused on this topic through a pilot procurement process to shift the market, as is NYS through EO #22. Let’s learn about how we can address steel, asphalt, concrete, and glass to radically and significantly reduce embodied carbon in our buildings and horizontal design!
