Claire McConnell, BEMP | Associate, Mithun, Seattle

Since the release of the 2030 Challenge in 2006, energy efficiency has driven sustainability metrics in building design and construction. The work of Mithun, and other signatories, is demonstrating that carbon neutrality in building operations is achievable. Energy efficiency has become commonly understood and gained significant traction, BUT it only addresses a portion of buildings’ total carbon impact.

Mithun is ramping up efforts to benchmark embodied carbon performance across our design portfolio using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This session will describe the critical role of embodied carbon in addressing climate change and highlight opportunities to apply LCA tools through replicable project workflows. Learn how Mithun applies LCA in practice, critically review data, and ultimately empower carbon-smart design decisions. Using specific examples from recent Mithun project work, this session will demonstrate how LCA can be leveraged in project design and across our wider portfolio to achieve significant reductions in embodied carbon.
