Resource Page

CLF Vancouver will soon be the local hub for resources relating to embodied emissions in the construction and building industry. Helpful resources from case studies, to low carbon material guides, and playbooks for efficient design will be uploaded to these pages soon. If you have a resource you wish to add to our hub please contact us using the links below.

Resources are curated by category, and are searchable by keyword.

Priopta supports design teams in reducing embodied carbon on construction projects and works with leading organizations and jurisdictions to develop effective embodied carbon policies. Anthony is also the founder of CLF Vancouver—the first local hub of the Carbon Leadership Forum—which organizes local events that empower industry professionals to radically reduce embodied carbon from buildings and infrastructure. Since 2019, CLF Vancouver has inspired over 30 other cities to start CLF local hubs. He now also serves as the CLF Global Hub Director, working to support the growth and impact of CLF hubs around the world.
