Calculating supply chain emissions of your project with the ECE Tool
Date:
Thursday, February 6, 2020 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Dr Soo Huey Teh
Venue:
Zenith Theatre Cnr Railway & McIntosh Streets Chatswood
Synopsis:
Whilst accounting for emissions from petrol/fuel use, purchased electricity, heat or steam are quite clearly defined, accounting for supply chain impacts, also known as Scope 3 emissions is more problematic – it requires an analysis that extends back through many stages of the upstream supply chain. The gathering of original and specific supply chain information for the organisation and its suppliers requires tremendous time and resources, and complete coverage of this information may not be ensured. The Embodied Carbon Explorer (ECE) online tool overcomes many of these technical problems and allows for comprehensive Scope 3 estimations of greenhouse gas emissions related to purchased products and services to be undertaken. This event will explore Scope 3 carbon emissions and how the ECE online tool can be used to attain a greater understanding and management of upstream embodied carbon/ Scope 3 emissions. This event will include an introduction to emissions in the built environment, presentation of the ECE tool and a step-by-step guide to using the ECE tool. It will demonstrate the ECE online tool through a case study related to the built environment to identify major emission contributors in a project’s supply chains. It will also demonstrate how the tool helps with Scope 3 accounting under the Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard.

Tools for Better Project Environmental Outcomes - LCA and EPDs
Date:
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Jonas Bengtsson EDGE and Stephen Mitchell EPD Australasia
Venue:
Zenith Theatre Cnr Railway & McIntosh Streets Chatswood
Synopsis:
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is an ISO standardised method for quantifying environmental impacts of a specific project, product or service. Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide independently verified environmental data and other environmental information of specific products and services – including a carbon footprint. Since these tools are considered to be the optimal methods of ascertaining environmental impacts, this event aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of these tools and their applicability in the industry.

Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr Enda Crossin, Swinburne Uni and Ms Nicole Sullivan, Green Building Council
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
With engineering projects facing the challenge of reaching a sustainable and net zero carbon future, the life cycle analysis process is more important than ever. Join us to learn how can we successfully analyse a project across various points over the life cycle. Co-hosted with Asset Management Council, Engineers Without Borders, Mechanical College & Risk Engineering Society.
What does sustainability mean to you?
Date:

Geoff Richardson, Adrian Piani, Steve Grzeskowiak
Venue:
Canberra Auditorium, 11 National Circuit, Barton
Synopsis:
What does sustainability mean to you? Hear from sustainability leaders Geoff Richardson, Adrian Piani and Steve Grzeskowiak on what sustainability means to them followed by question and answer session. Sustainability noun 1The ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level. ‘the sustainability of economic growth’ ‘schemes to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project’ 1.1Avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. ‘the pursuit of global environmental sustainability’ ‘the ecological sustainability of the planet’
Building Information Modelling - The future of designing green buildings and infrastructure
Date:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Liam Corscadden Australian Digital Engineering Lead for Urban Development & Regeneration for Arcadis, and Matt Drake, Digital Engineering Manager, Lendlease
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Building Information Modelling (BIM) utilises digital media to represent the physical and functional properties of a structure. BIM transcends the traditional 2D technical drawings to accommodate all 3 dimensions, while also enhancing the same with additional dimensions of time, cost, environmental sustainability and life cycle facility management. Join Mr. Liam Corscadden and Mr. Matt Drake in an informative session that will shed light on the world of BIM, its applications and its scope in Australia.
Tough Is Not Enough
Date:
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30

Steve Posselt
Venue:
Engineers Australia South Australia - Level 11, 108 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Synopsis:
Steve Posselt will take you on an incredible journey with his wheeled kayak. The only person to have paddled up the Mississippi in a flood, Steve will have you spellbound as he makes his way to Paris for the COP21 Climate Summit. The climate change message, that is the science has not sunk in where it is needed. The message is correct but the messaging has failed. Steve will give you some clues as to how our imperfect brains work, and how to tailor communication approaches to suit.
