To drive change, the 7th Annual 1.5°C Symposium on Climate Change is dedicated to fostering a deeper understanding of the pivotal role played by Embodied Carbon in our industry. This issue stands as one of the most pressing challenges we face in our lifetimes(careers). Our mission is to delve into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of this matter while underscoring the urgency it presents to both ourselves and the environment.

During the event, we will analyze the financial feasibility of low-carbon construction, explore strategies for intelligent material selection, and unveil innovative technologies for reducing carbon in concrete. We invite attendees to immerse themselves in real-world low-carbon projects, gaining valuable perspectives through the lens of the design process.
