Buildings generate approximately 40% of the world’s carbon emissions, which is why major US cities, including Washington, D.C., are leading the way with robust plans to become carbon neutral starting from the new and existing building stock.

Join Arup, global built environment consulting firm, for a panel discussion that will bring together experts from public and private sectors to address the importance of working together across the architecture, engineering and construction industry to achieve practical and scalable solutions to lower buildings’ carbon footprint for our net zero future. The conversation will be moderated by Linda Toth, Energy and Sustainability Team Leader at Arup's Washington, DC office.

Speakers include:

  • Kevin Kampschroer, Chief Sustainability Officer and Director of the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings, the U.S. General Services Administration
  • Ali Alaswadi, Green Building Plan Reviewer, Department of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs (DCRA)

The program will start with a guided tour of 80 M Street SE, the first high-rise overbuild timber structure in North America. The tour will be led by Arup's project manager Lauren Wingo. 80 M is a testament to advances in timber technology and forward-thinking building regulations to significantly lower carbon footprint.
