Learning to think about embodied carbon

The term “embodied carbon” describes the CO2 emissions associated with a building that came from the manufacture, transportation, installation, maintenance, and disposal of building and infrastructure materials- even before the building was constructed! It is an important piece of the CO2 reduction puzzle in Massachusetts. We talk to an expert to find ways to understand this rapidly developing field.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon that protects environmental justice communities.  

Thanks for listening.
