W31 - Life Cycle Assessments - Current Gaps and Future Trends
Join CLF Alberta & industry thought leaders as we shift the focus to life cycle assessments (LCA), unraveling their pivotal role in reducing embodied carbon.
Discover the current LCA landscape, including data utilization and the potential to drive significant carbon reductions with the aid of advanced software tools. Uncover strategies to overcome implementation challenges and important considerations integral to the LCA process through real-world cases and discussions with software users and creators.
This seminar will provide attendees with insights into conducting an LCA and the speakers will share information and tools to radically reduce embodied carbon from buildings and infrastructure.
