Deep green retrofits: Advancing carbon neutrality through renovation and renewal

Allison Wilson, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP
Sustainability Director
Elizabeth McLean, AIA, NOMA
Senior Associate

This session explores how institutions are expanding enterprise-wide solutions for carbon neutrality with deep green retrofits of existing campus buildings. Session leaders call upon multiple case studies to demonstrate how specific investments in existing buildings, coupled with clean energy purchases, reduced (and offset) operational emissions while simultaneously preserving embodied carbon and campus character. They examine how these same investments and lessons-learned can be applied at different scales and provide a roadmap detailing how institutions can productively engage their existing buildings as part of comprehensive climate neutrality initiatives.
