Embodied carbon and carbon sequestration in buildings

embodied carbon of building materials

Can buildings be an important part of the climate change solution?

The answer is Yes, and the key is using carbon sequestering materials instead of carbon-intensive materials.

Endeavour Centre director Chris Magwood is currently working on a Master’s thesis at Trent University’s Sustainability Studies program, examining the embodied carbon of building materials and the role of sequestration in drastically reducing the climate change impacts of our built environment.

On Tuesday, March 14th at 7pm, join Chris and hosts Fourth Pig Worker’s Coop, Eco-Building Resource and Green Community Hub at the Shacklands Brewing Company in Toronto to see the results of this research to date and learn more about turning our buildings into carbon sinks!

The event is free, and discussion time and beer will follow the presentation!
