Man-made climate change due to carbon emissions is an existential threat to global health, safety, and welfare. Carbon emissions cause environmental warming that impacts polar ice melt, rising seas, and causes extreme weather events. The only way to stop or slow climate change is to reduce our carbon emissions. Net zero construction is one of the best ways for the design community to contribute to a solution. This presentation will explain the Net Zero design process and techniques via a case study of a new, McDonald’s restaurant in Florida as the most challenging building type and location to meet this high standard.Speaker:
