To avoid worsening impacts of climate change, the world needs to rapidly transition to low carbon design. In this webinar, case studies will be presented on the use of life cycle assessment by engineers, including carbon accounting, to inform design alternative reviews. The objective of presenting these case studies is to promote the benefits of LCA and educate engineers in the practice of carbon accounting.
