TRACK 2 – Achieving NET ZERO: Resources
Earn 1 AIA LU/HSW, 1 GBCI LEED Specific CE (BD+C), PDH

This Panel will address just some of the tools used in the industry to manage projects to achieve Net Zero. Many different tools/platforms exist that address all aspects of “NET ZERO” (from water to waste to energy and everything in-between). This Panel will explore the linkages between LEED for Cities/Communities, the ARC Platform, and LEED Zero and how these tools provide guidance and support to successfully achieve your NET ZERO Goals.

Also, with “Wellbeing” having


as the “New Innovation”, how the WELL Health-Safety Rating tool and the WELL and LEED platforms produce buildings, campuses and cities that are more Resilient, Healthier, Energy Efficient, and Environmentally Responsible in which to live, work and play.

Circular Economy: A Framework for Zero Waste + Zero Carbon Buildings
Earn 1.5 AIA LU/HSWs, 1 GBCI LEED Specific CE (BD+C), PDHs

While 2020 was a crazy year for many reasons, it also hosted the passing of a grim milestone: human-made stuff now exceeds all living biomass on Earth. We’ve been slowly turning all of the natural resources on the planet into landfill in the dumbest and wasteful way. We need a new model for making things.

The Circular Economy is an alternative approach to how we make things that looks at zero-waste, zero-emissions approach to design and manufacturing. It redesigns the traditional linear approach to manufacturing of “TAKE>MAKE>WASTE” and loops it into a healthy, regenerative, and renewable approach. For buildings, it gives us a framework to rethink and redesign our approach to materials and waste. It also shows us how to apply these ideas to a district or campus scale to achieve zero carbon and zero waste affordably.

In this talk, we’ll explore how to take something as complex as a university campus and create a clear pathway to eliminating and designing out waste and zeroing out emissions. We’ll explore how to use LEED, WELL, and True to coordinate with the established principles of the Circular Economy to set a roadmap to achieve these bold targets.

We’ll also show how movements like Cradle to Cradle, Natural Capitalism, Biomimicry, and regenerative design work their way into the Circular Economy and connects back to systems like LEED and WELL.

Hear from the author of the brand new bestselling book, Circular Economy for Dummies on how this framework can be applied to your work to achieve some amazing sustainability outcomes.

TRACK 1: Ensuring Your Community’s Emergency Preparedness
Earn 1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face CEs, 1.5 AIA LU/HSWs, 1.5 GBCI LEED Specific CEs (BD+C, O+M),PDHs

(IHEN Session) 

In the best of circumstances, healthcare organizations operate in a complex environment. This can be exacerbated when a community faces a local or national emergency, either natural, human-caused, or technological, that thrusts the healthcare system to the forefront of response and makes it the focus of recovery efforts. It is critical that the local healthcare community be actively engaged in the development of comprehensive emergency preparedness plans, training, and exercises to ensure that local organizations communicate and coordinate their mutual support in service to the community.

TRACK 2: Achieving NET ZERO: Lessons Learned
Earn 1 AIA LU/HSW, 1 GBCI LEED Specific CEs (BD+C), PDH

This panel will tackle challenges, opportunities and best practices for achieving Net Zero, with insights focused on both individual building systems as well as the overall utility/electric grid perspective. The discussion will include topics such as electrification (from buildings to cars) and renewable energy sources, and the challenge of the transition for utilities from carbon-based fossil fuels. The panel will conclude with a case study of a successful Net Zero project in Indiana. Walk away with a powerful new perspective and lessons learned as you plan your next NET ZERO project or sustainability initiative.
