ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.8 - Building Environmental Impacts and Sustainability
Welcome to the home page of ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.8 - Building Environmental Impacts and Sustainability
TC 2.8 is concerned with the impacts of buildings on the local, regional and global environment; means for identifying and reducing these impacts; and enhancing ASHRAE member awareness of the impacts. The impacts of concern affect long term sustainability of our environment and the quality of life for current and future generations. These building impacts include, but are not limited to, biological and mineral resource depletion; environmental impacts of energy production, conversion, delivery and use; availability of future energy resources; pollution of air, water, and soil; and encroachment on sensitive habitats and ecosystems.
TC 2.8 meets twice each year, once at ASHRAE's Winter Conference and again at ASHRAE's Annual Conference. The next meeting of TC 2.8 will be in Denver Colorado on June 25, 2013.
