SCALING IMPACT: EMBODIED CARBON ACTION
Description Coming Soon.
ABOUT THE CARBON LEADERSHIP FORUM
The Carbon Leadership Forum is accelerating the transformation of the building sector to radically reduce the embodied carbon in building materials and construction through collective action. We pioneer research, create resources, foster cross-collaboration, and incubate member-led initiatives to bring embodied carbon emissions of buildings down to zero. We are architects, engineers, contractors, material suppliers, building owners and policymakers who care about the future and are taking bold steps to decarbonize the built environment, with a keen focus on eliminating embodied carbon from buildings and infrastructure.
