Speaker: Lisa Conway, LEED AP ID+C, VP Sustainability, Americas Interface

There are two types of carbon emissions with respect to a building: operational carbon and embodied carbon. Operational carbon refers to carbon dioxide emitted during the life of a building, emissions from heating, cooling, lighting, etc. Embodied carbon refers to carbon dioxide emitted during the extraction, manufacture, and transport of building materials. During this session, you will learn about tools for selecting products and materials that reduce embodied carbon emissions and move the industry toward making carbon storing products the rule, rather than the exception.

RSVP HERE By Oct 10

Driving and Parking: Located on the northeast side of the University of Texas at Dallas campus near the corner of Synergy Park Boulevard and Floyd Road. As you turn off Synergy Park Boulevard onto Facilities Way, on your left you should see the Facilities Management building. You may park in any green or “visitor” parking space, and then obtain a parking permit from the Facilities Management employee, providing them with your license plate number.  If you have any trouble locating the building, please call front desk at 972-883-2141.
