(October 17) Beyond Borders: Tackling embodied emissions through local climate action

Join ACT representatives at the event Beyond Borders: Tackling embodied emissions through local climate action to discuss the complex topic of embodied emissions in cities and communities. Experts and decision makers from Vancouver, the U.S., and the U.K. will convene to discuss emissions reductions from sources that stem from outside their boundaries and the resulting embodied carbon that passes and accumulates through global supply chains.

Join this PICS-hosted event and learn from the challenges and successes of leaders in the field:

  • Anthony Pak, building life cycle analysis consultant and founder of the Vancouver chapter of the Embodied Carbon Network
  • Patrick Enright, Green Building Engineer at the City of Vancouver and lead on “Big Move 5,” targeting embodied emissions in construction
  • Caterina Brandmayr, Senior Policy Analyst with Green Alliance in the UK who works on local government policy for embodied emissions (joining remotely)
  • Abel Chavez, Associate Professor in Environment and Sustainability at Western Colorado University with expertise in urban emissions accounting and resilience planning
  • Georgia Piggot, Staff Scientist at the Stockholm Environment Institute who focuses on low-carbon transitions at an urban scale
  • Hannah Teicher, event moderator and PICS Researcher-in-Residence for the Built Environment

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so please register here.

You may also join remotely via webcast. https://www.sfu.ca/itservices/technical/webcasting-and-video-recording/webcast-archive/2019/10/2019-10-17-pics/
