EN-004 Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Construction: 3 PDH
Description of the Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Construction course
The Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Construction on online PDH course is a part of the Environmental Engineering category of courses.
There is growing attention to the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on climate change. As the concentrations of GHGs continue to increase in the atmosphere, the Earth’s temperature continues to rise.
In an effort to better understand the construction industry’s effect on the environment, this course offers an overview on the sources and magnitude of construction GHG emissions and ways to reduce them. While there are numerous studies available that can help companies identify and quantify their GHG emissions, this course examines opportunities explicitly for construction companies.
This course is based on United States Environmental Protection Agency document “Potential for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Construction Sector”.
This course is intended for use by environmental engineers, architects, civil, structural and MEP engineers, design and construction professionals, owners, facility managers, students and others interested in learning about reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the construction industry.
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Characterize emissions
- Breakdown emissions sources
- Compare emissions estimates
- Project future greenhouse gas impacts to construction
- Evaluate opportunities to reduce emissions
- Calculate company-specific greenhouse gas emissions
