PHribbon Case Studies - Single Family Embodied Carbon Focus: 17 Mile Haus
Event header


Join The Passive House Network on 18 May 2023, Noon ET, for the online event "Single Family Embodied Carbon Focus: 17 Mile Haus". 

The event will be focused on PHribbon Case Studies showcasing real-world examples and the professionals working on them. The PHN PHribbon allows Passive House designers to calculate total cradle-to-grave building carbon emissions, for buildings located in the US, within the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) tool. By utilizing the PHPP and PHN PHribbon, building designers have an unparalleled ability to connect design and construction choices to carbon emissions outcomes. With the PHN PHribbon designers can optimize their building designs to address our climate emergency.
