Comment

This plan needs to include a provision for a building's life cycle, particularly in sourcing, manufacturing and disposing of building materials that have a direct impact on Photochemical Ozone Formation (Smog), particulate matter emissions, and human toxicity. I know environmental justice is one of CARB's goals and disadvantaged communities based on land-use policies end up paying the price of poor air quality as a direct result of emissions associated with embodied carbon among other factors. The building industry is including Embodied Carbon in policy discussions today as an urgent measure to be adopted and CARB should do the same. At the very least it’ll set in motion adoption targets for full building lifecycle analysis for all building projects.
