Carbon Smart Building Day brings together over 300 participants to lead the built environment toward Net Zero Carbon

In collaboration with 22 community partners, the Carbon Leadership Forum helped convened the Carbon Smart Building Day at the September 2018 Global Climate Action Summit. The sold-out event brought together over 300 architects, structural engineers, contractors, real estate developers, materials manufacturers and policy makers who aspire to reduce the carbon footprint of their projects and make the building industry a big part of the solution to climate change. The event led to the launch of a Car­bon Smart Building Declaration, which has been signed by over 100 organizations. The sold-out event was highlighted in the press, including The Washington Post and Engineering News-Record.
The conference was designed to inspire building industry professionals to lead the built environment toward Net Zero Carbon, and equip them with the latest tools, resources and programs to help firms thrive in a Net Zero Carbon future. Read a summary of the event published by Architectural Record and listen to the keynote presentation by Edward Mazria of Architecture 2030.
