An ELI Public Webinar

With merely 7 years remaining to meet 2030 emission targets, where do we stand with new policies and legislation? Are we on track to thwart global warming?

The Inflation Reduction Act and Federal Buy Clean Initiative have inspired states and municipalities to regulate embodied carbon (Scope 3) using “Buy Clean” policies and legislation. Reducing embodied carbon has become mainstream; Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) have surfaced as the tool. Are EPDs alone enough? Is the compliance timeline sufficient?

Join the Environmental Law Institute and expert panelists for an update on Buy Clean policy, green funding, the status of carbon emissions, and a primer on EPDs. We will reserve time at the end of the program for an audience Q&A session.
