    Along with energy conservation measures, sustainability trends are continuously becoming more robust with high focus on carbon emissions, product transparency and resiliency. The Buy California Clean Act and the new Cal Green 2024 code cycle have placed an intense focus on Type III Product specific and Factory specific EPD Counts as they pertain to Embodied Carbon and its impact on the GWP.

    With the advent of BCCA and Cal Green 2024 code updates building professionals must commit to creating spaces that encompass not only appropriate measures for the health, safety and welfare (HSW) of building occupants but also take responsibility for Designing and Building projects with Documented and compliant EPD counts.

    This course will analyze these new code measures while guiding design and build professionals on finding a pathway to compliance.

    Attendees will be able to leverage the in situ experiences discussed into best practices that can be applied to future projects.

    Catering provided by La Fromagerie, Happy Hour beer/wine provided from 5pm – 5:30pm, Presentation from 5:30pm – 6:30pm, Networking from 6:30pm – 7pm.
