LCA and Green Star
This leading assessment technique is now integrated into Green Star rating tools via Innovation Challenges and two LCA-based draft credits. So if you’re working with Green Star, your project team needs to understand how to work with LCA.
Delivered over a four-part series, each module is tailored to a specific aspect of LCA and sustainable building. You can attend, one or all of the modules delivered face-to-face. We encourage everyone to attend the introductory module, before attending the detailed modules.
