ISIE Webinar on Feb 22nd - Dr. Tommy Wiedmann
We are pleased to announce our next ISIE webinar will be on Thursday, February 22nd from 4:30-5:30 pm EST
Carbon footprint accounts are becoming increasingly important for cities that aim to take a lead in tacking climate change. Dr. Tommy Wiedmann will discuss how to assess urban development from a carbon footprint perspective and provides new insights for dealing with the extended responsibility for global resource use of cities.
CONSUMPTION-BASED CARBON FOOTPRINTS OF GLOBAL CITIES
February 22, 2018, 4:30 - 5:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
The webinar will address the challenges of reliably quantifying city carbon footprints based on global multi-region input-output analysis, present results for selected cities and discuss the usefulness of consumption-based carbon footprint accounting for decision-making around urban sustainability.
