Meeting the Challenge of Rapid Decarbonization

The policies and requirements for decarbonizing building operations and construction are changing quickly. At the same time, the growing impacts of climate change demand we accelerate our pace of decarbonization.

SmithGroup held an interactive discussion in the nation’s capital with a think-tank of A/E industry and design experts to tackle the topic of rapid decarbonization. Representing a range of professional perspectives and markets, the group explored the trends, challenges and most promising directions for advancing deep decarbonization faster and at larger scales.

The resulting summary highlights key takeaways from this discussion, as well as a sharing of programs, processes, tools and technologies that are changing the game for how quickly and sustainably we can advance decarbonization by design.
