Equitable Life-Cycles in Healthy Material Sourcing
We must take a whole life cycle approach to healthy material sourcing that considers the spectrum of upstream and downstream impacts of decarbonization and supports equitable outcomes for communities. Expanding on the focus of last year’s Just Transition Summit, this session will investigate healthy building strategies, labor and supply chain implications, materials toxicity and chemical concerns that affect the lived experiences of users, and historical and current community design practices.
