Calculating Carbon Savings from Building Reuse and Retrofit (Preservation Priorities Task Force) 

04-12-2022 15:02

This webinar Took Place April 12, 2022, and was a brought to you by the Preservation Priorities Task Force, a collaboration between the National Preservation Partners Network and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Decisions about whether to reuse, retrofit, or replace older buildings can have a big impact on carbon emissions. But calculating those impacts is difficult without good data. This session will highlight development of an innovative new “carbon calculator” that will allow preservationists, developers, policy makers, and other users to compare the carbon impacts of specific reuse, retrofit, and replacement scenarios. Hear from the developers of the “Carbon Avoided Reuse Estimator” (or C.A.R.E.) tool and learn how it can support efforts to save carbon and historic buildings.  

The slides are available at the bottom of this page.
