Building Innovation: How can you reduce your Carbon Footprint through your buildings?
What impact does your company’s building construction have on your bottom-line emission output?  Addressing the emissions from building material manufacturing is the next frontier in total carbon accounting for buildings and infrastructure. Join the REBA team for a webinar led by Kate Simonen, Director of the Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF), Amanda von Almen, Head of Sustainable Built Environment at Salesforce and Kelsey Price, Director for Sustainability at Magnusson Klemencic Associates. CLF is an industry-academic collaborative effort dedicated to bringing hard to abate emissions in the building sector to zero. Kate will speak to the issue at hand, the tools available to simplify this complex problem, and how to apply them to your company’s operations, while Amanda and Kelsey will speak to the applicability and value of these tools within their organizations.
