Event description
Join experts and decision-makers from Vancouver, the US, and the UK on the critical issue of embodied emissions in cities and communities.

About this Event

Leading city networks, NGOs, and municipal governments are increasingly looking beyond their boundaries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, the embodied carbon that accumulates through global supply chains is emerging as an important focus for urban climate action.

Local and international leaders are developing strategies to reduce the holistic footprint of buildings, food, transportation, and other goods and services.

Join this PICS-hosted event and learn from the challenges and successes of leaders in the field:

  • Anthony Pak, building life cycle analysis consultant and founder of the Vancouver chapter of the Embodied Carbon Network
  • Patrick Enright, Green Building Engineer at the City of Vancouver and lead on “Big Move 5,” targeting embodied emissions in construction
  • Caterina Brandmayr, Senior Policy Analyst with Green Alliance in the UK who works on local government policy for embodied emissions (joining remotely)
  • Abel Chavez, Associate Professor in Environment and Sustainability at Western Colorado University with expertise in urban emissions accounting and resilience planning
  • Georgia Piggot, Staff Scientist at the Stockholm Environment Institute who focuses on low-carbon transitions at an urban scale
  • Hannah Teicher, event moderator and PICS Researcher-in-Residence for the Built Environment

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so please register here.
