What good is a “Net-Zero” building if just the act of making it dumps a huge load of CO2 into the air? The urgency of climate disruption demands that we reduce impacts now, not slowly over the next 50 years. Here we will look beyond reducing operating energy to also reducing the effects of construction and material choices. This course was designed in partnership with Sustainable Building Advisor.
