Conversation on Carbon with Jonas Bengtsson

Global GreenTag International will be presenting Jonas Bengtsson, CEO and Co-Founder of the science based sustainability consultancy Edge Environment on Wednesday, September 22 for its monthly Conversations Series. This month we have invited Jonas to explore with us the topic of carbon and how to more effectively manage the carbon footprints on construction projects.

Jonas who has a MSc in Physics specialising in problem solving, a Diploma in Psychology from Gothenburg University and a Master of Environmental Management from UNSW has a passion and curiosity for sustainable development and market change. He believes that there is a long way to go before we can work effectively across supply chains and organisations to establish a sustainable existence. However, Jonas also sees opportunities to engage and unleash a global resource of entrepreneurship, creativity and productivity that can transform our society to the kind of world that we really want within our lifetime – where unsustainable is unthinkable. 

For this session with Global GreenTag International, Jonas will be providing his perspective on why carbon is important and will be discussing solutions to get out of the mess that mismanagement of carbon has created for the environment through the impacts of climate change.  The event will cover:

* What is Carbon?

* How do we work with Carbon? Can we?

* The role of LCA (Life Cycle Assesment) and EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations)

* Rating Tools & Carbon

* Future trends – predictions for LCA and EPDs

* How Global GreenTag is an active participant with LCARate, CarbonRATE and EPDs

Getting to Net Zero: Dealing with Embodied Impact

Global GreenTag International presents a new webinar for Design Matters National on April 19 for architect and design professionals. The CPD point educational will be delivered by David Baggs, Life Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects and Global GreenTag’s CEO and Program Director.

TIMES:

Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane – 1:00-2:00pm, Adelaide & Darwin -12.30-1.30pm, Perth 11:00-12:00pm

Design Matters National is an industry education organisation for Australia’s largest community of Building Designers and Thermal Performance Assessors

In this webinar, Getting to Net Zero: Dealing with Embodied Impact, David explains how we need to pursue a restorative, bio-based approach to assist in taking existing carbon impacts out of buildings. Focus on carbon reduction in the building industry to avoid climate change needs to be a lot more urgent and product selection is key.

  • Examine building products certified for carbon impacts using a whole of life, sustainability, rating system that provides a CabonRATE assessment scheme to further Net Positive and Net Carbon Zero product outcomes.
  • Learn where to bring carbon-reduced products into projects using rating tools, including LEED, Green Star and market ready carbon calculation support like  EPDs, GreenBook, eTool, EC3, Athena, OneClick LCA, Revit’s Tally and BRE’s Impact.
