CARE Tool: Quantifying the Carbon Savings from Reuse (Webinar)


Presented by the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP) and National Trust for Canada

Are you looking for help to make the climate case for saving and reusing an older building? Join this webinar to learn about the newly released Carbon Avoided Reuse Estimator (“CARE Tool”).

Launched early this year by Architecture 2030, the CARE Tool estimates the operational and embodied carbon emissions associated with reusing and upgrading an existing building or replacing it with new construction. This innovative carbon estimator can be used by policymakers, planners, building owners, developers, heritage building officers, architects, educators, and others who are interested in a pre- or early-design, high-level assessment of the total carbon emissions of building reuse versus replacement.

The developers of the tool will demonstrate the tools capabilities and give us case examples from early adopters. There will also be discussion about the work needed to update the CARE tool for the Canadian context.
