Tradeoffs between Embodied and Operational Carbon in Building Envelope Design

Designing buildings to operate on less energy and carbon is essential to net zero goals, but some design choices—particularly in facades—can increase a building’s upfront embodied carbon. This session explores the design decisions and tradeoffs real estate professionals should know to create buildings that are low carbon from construction to end of life, based on research from ULI Greenprint, architecture firm KPF, and the University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab.
