Sustainability is the balance between the environment, equity and economy. Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Jeff Moore, a sustainability manager with SOPREMA, Inc., and Missy DeLaTorre, a Southern California Architectural sales representative, will deliver a live webinar for Building Enclosure and the Continuing Education Center about sustainability in the built environment and how building products affect the environment over the life of the building. Join them at 2 p.m. Thursday, October 20, 2022, from the comfort of your home or office to hear “Sustainability and the Contributions of Commercial Roofing.”


This webcast will review common terminology and guidance on what tools/resources are used in designing for low embodied carbon green building projects. In addition, it will review certification platforms and how to optimize product attributes with the many commercial roofing assemblies. Plus, attendees can earn one (1) AIA LU/HSW credit, one (1) IIBEC CEH or 0.1 IACET CEU for participating.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

  • Review common terminology and how embodied carbon is measured and the associated changing dynamics with building designs.
  • Explain the role of sustainability in sourcing: what to look for in terms of roofing products and manufacturing practices.
  • Review sustainability methods to common industry certifications, such as LEED.
  • Review commercial roofing options to maximize product attributes.
