Dinner Presentation

Decarbonizing the Built Environment: Reducing Embodied and Operational Carbon from Net Zero Design

To prevent global temperatures from exceeding 1.5°C, global net anthropogenic CO2 emissions must decline by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. The building industry generates about 40% of annual CO2 emissions, so a rapid shift to high-performance building design is necessary to reach the goal. Sean will discuss how the following topics relate to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 228, Standard Method of Evaluating Zero Net Energy and Zero Net Carbon Building Performance and what challenges and opportunities exist for future work:

  • reduction pathways for reducing both embodied and operational carbon of the built environment.
  • high-performance building modeling and whole building life cycle assessment (LCA)
  • ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 228
  • Key concepts: embodied carbon, operational carbon, high-performance building modeling, building lifecycle assessment, ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 228



Sean Casey CEM, LEED AP is AECOM’s Decarbonization Technical Lead. His experience includes sustainable energy master planning, high performance building design, building energy simulation, and federal sustainability programs. He lives in Vienna, Virginia with his wife and three sons, is a graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder (Go Buffs!), and a proud AmeriCorps alum.
