Wood WORKS! BC – Carbon/Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) Workshop – Kelowna

Wood WORKS! BC – Carbon/Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) Workshop – Kelowna

A dynamic day of learning about impacts of materials and systems in our built environment.

As building performance and energy efficiency increases for new buildings, greater awareness is being paid to the life cycle impacts of the materials and systems which comprise the building structure. Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) has been recognized in most major green building rating systems as an important tool to evaluate and reduce the embodied impacts of construction, including transportation of materials.

In addition, global recognition of the impact of carbon emissions has led to global, national, provincial and regional regulations being enacted to measure, regulate and reduce both operational and embodied carbon emissions. Indeed, the City of Vancouver now requires embodied carbon impacts be reported for all rezoning and Vancouver Affordable Housing Authority projects.
