Renaissance Arlington Capital View




The Decarbonization Conference for the Built Environment will be an information and idea exchange, between stakeholders in the built environment industry, concerning the timely and important topic of reducing carbon emissions from buildings.  The goal is to discuss the design, construction, ownership, and operation of facilities targeted for reduced or neutral impact on the environment with respect to carbon footprint.  A primary objective of the conference is to enhance the knowledge base in North America on decarbonization efforts.

Building Innovation Hub Director Theresa Backhus will speak Wednesday, Oct. 25 as part of the session, “Paradigm Shift – How Building Performance Standards Reshape How Building Owners Plan for Building Updates and Renovations”. The session will address the growth of Building Performance Standards and explore how DC’s BEPS is changing the existing building market. The panel will explain policy basics, address policy-related challenges and opportunities, and share examples of implementation successes.

The conference is organized by ASHRAE, AIA, APPA, BOMA, and IFMA.
