Webinar On Demand: Building Greener Part 1: Addressing Climate Change With Structural Steel (October 2023)




Have you lately been hearing buzzwords like “EPD,” “Buy Clean,” and of course, “sustainability”? These terms are all tied to the recent strong push to lower embodied carbon in buildings and contribute to a healthier planet. This webinar will discuss several of the fundamentals related to embodied carbon, the truth behind HSS environmental impacts, and how designers/steel suppliers can practically incorporate life cycle assessment considerations into your design projects. This free session is part one of two in our Sustainability Series for the month of October.

Learning Objectives
Webinar topics will include:

  • Understanding how HSS is produced and how it helps designers meet sustainability goals
  • Becoming aware of the available environmental product declarations (EPDs) for HSS
  • Practical advice for specifications and general notes for sustainable designs using steel
