The International Conference on Decarbonization in the Built Environment is a must-attend event for all stakeholders in the built environment industry who are passionate about reducing carbon emissions from buildings and infrastructure.

This 3rd ASHRAE topical conference provides a unique opportunity for professionals to share information, exchange ideas and collaborate on the design, construction, ownership and operation of facilities that have a minimal or neutral impact on the environment in terms of carbon footprint. Our primary objective is to enrich the knowledge base while fostering global collaborations in decarbonization efforts, ultimately leading to a sustainable future for our planet. Join us at this groundbreaking event and be a part of the solution towards a greener, more sustainable built environment.
