Shifting Paradigm for Net-Zero Construction

Details

Date & Time:
September 22, 2020
11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
Add to Calendar September 22, 2020 11:00 am September 22, 2020 12:30 pm America/New_York Shifting Paradigm for Net-Zero Construction

The construction sector is not only one of the most reliable engines for economic recovery, in the current COVID-19 context. It is also a formidable vector to continue advancing towards net-zero construction, including through an accelerated uptake of low carbon materials and solutions. Reaching the COP21 ambitions must remain a priority and the building and construction sector can effectively contribute to it. And this underlines a prerequisite: our ability to define what forms net-zero construction and how we measure the carbon footprint across the lifecycle of construction projects.

The panelists will provide different perspectives on some of the tools, market requirements and public policies that will help drive this agenda.

The session will be hosted by Jamie Gentoso, CEO – US Cement, LafargeHolcim and will be moderated by Tom Erb from the Centre for Climate and Energy Solution (C2ES)

Panelists include:

Cristina Gamboa, CEO, World Green Building Council

Bill Sisson, Executive Director, WBCSD North America

Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer, LafargeHolcim
