A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable construction: The Sourcing low-carbon concrete for construction and infrastructure projects free webinar on October 13.
Join us for a free one-hour webinar on how to procure low-carbon concrete to reduce the embodied emissions of your construction and infrastructure projects.
The production of concrete is estimated to be responsible for as much as 10 percent of global CO2 emissions — almost as much as the emissions attributed to all worldwide residential heating and electricity production. So as organizations strive to lower their carbon footprint, interest in low-carbon concrete is rising rapidly.
But many questions arise on the way to adopting low-carbon concrete specifications. What is the best way to reduce concrete’s embodied carbon? Is low-carbon concrete less robust or durable than conventional concrete? Does it require special handling? Is there sufficient supply in a given area to cover a project’s needs? And how can the building developer or owner drive low-carbon concrete specifications down to subcontractors who are usually engaged on a project or deliverables completion basis, rather than overseen at the materials selection level?
