GHG Emissions & Mitigations in Construction Projects

Posted: 10/31/2023

TRAINING: December 7, 2023, 9:00AM - 11:00AM PT [CLOSED]

CALTAP annouces the latest in a series of courses in sustainable engineering training, which focuses on measuring and reducing the carbon footprint of construction projects.

Reducing the environmental impacts of construction contributes to sustainability and positively impacts climate change. Reducing a project's carbon footprint—the amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted into the atmosphere—and minimizing its impact on the nautral habitat, are key to increasing sustainability and minimizing climate change.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an overview of GHGs and their CO2 equivalent
  • Identify sources of GHG emission in construction projects
  • Understand how a project's carbon footprint is calculated
  • Identify different GHG mitigation approaches

Target Audience

  • Industry professionals who secure, plan, or implement construction projects
  • Engineering students interested in learning how to mitigate GHG emissions

Benefits of Training

  • Learn about construction processes, equipment, and sources of GHGs
  • Learn how to reduce GHG emissions from planning to implementation
  • Learn from interactive exercises and construction case studies

GHG Emissions & Mitigations in Construction Projects is the second in a series of Sustainable Engineering Training Academy (SETA) modules specifically designed for transportation and construction engineers, planners, and project managers to identify and reduce the environmental impacts of construction projects and roadway development.
