Senior representative for sustainable building science, Mickel Maalouf, joins Patrick Flannery to talk about the growing demand for builders to show not only the energy-efficiency of their designs, but also their low contribution to climate change through embodied carbon. More and more architects and project owners are asking for Environmental Product Declarations that certify how much carbon dioxide was released in the manufacture, transport, installation, maintenance and disposal of building materials. Maalouf explains how choosing products with EPDs can satisfy your clients’ need to create a life cycle analysis for their designs and help them meet the tough environmental regulations of the future.
