The 2022 Embodied Carbon Symposium gathers a group of international scholars passionate about reducing the carbon emissions of the built environments and presents the latest research on embodied carbon at various scales of material, building, and urban. Hosted online by Penn State, 20 speakers will present their studies in five panels on Nov. 28–29, 2022.

This project was made possible through the funds provided by the Penn State Department of Architecture, which is housed in the College of Arts and Architecture’s Stuckeman School, Resource and Energy Efficiency (RE2) Lab, and the Hamer Center for Community Design.

For questions and opportunities related to this project, please feel free to contact Dr. Rahman Azari at razari@psu.edu.
