Carbon Footprint Policy Accelerator Conference
7-8 Nov 2023, 09:00-17:00
Demand-side policies targeting the carbon footprint of products are promising instruments for the much-needed rapid decarbonization of industry and construction. The built environment has become a testing ground for path-breaking policies in the form of maximum carbon footprint procurement specifications for building products and maximum whole life carbon thresholds for buildings.
At this international conference, inputs from key actors involved with the Buy Clean movement in the USA (public procurement of building products) and mandatory maximum carbon threshold standard setting for buildings in Denmark and the Netherlands will be complemented with interactive sessions on the limitations and potentials of these approaches and the transfer of lessons learnt.
The conference will further explore the connections with the US Inflation Reduction Act and public and private pledges to buy ultra-low carbon products through the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Industrial Deep Decarbonisation Initiative (IDDI) and the First Movers Coalition, highlighting potentials for coordinated action.
