G11 - If Poor Performing Buildings Are The Problem, Then What Is the Solution?

Friday, November 22 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM | B206 « Back

Abstract Text:

77% of carbon emissions in the buildings sector, need to be avoided by 2050 compared with present levels, to follow through on the commitments made in Paris. Energy use and transportation are two direct indicators of carbon emissions associated with your building. Establishing strong foundational policies followed by tracking, measuring and managing a building’s overall environmental performance is an important part of the solution. Green building professionals play a critical role in ensuring high performing designs and operations. The global community is using platforms like Arc and LEED certification to identify, achieve and celebrate deeper efficiencies across a myriad of space types. The scoring methodology used in LEED v 4.1 is unique as the only scoring system that can be applied across metrics of energy, water, waste, transportation, air quality, occupant satisfaction and carbon to derive a singular global comparison. This session will offer a deep dive into lessons learnt in extracting data from existing buildings, leveraging best practices to improve performance and implementing LEEDv4.1 to demonstrate climate action. Green building professionals will offer management, engineering, design and engagement driven perspectives, for the built environment to do more with data.

Learning Objectives:

Define scope of LEED v4.1 Operations and Maintenance for diverse space types and how the score is driving performance targets

Summarize the data needed to benchmark performance and develop an improvement roadmap

Explain effective best practices to scale improvements across real estate portfolios

Identify the business case and financial drivers that help owners decide on capital improvements and higher efficiency measures on their spaces.
