The Drive Toward Reducing Carbon in Concrete Construction

Increasingly, the design and construction industry is recognizing the importance of reducing embodied carbon emissions, and buildings involving concrete offer a major opportunity to help the industry have a meaningful impact on this issue. 

In this webinar, you'll learn about new embodied carbon research that demonstrates a major shift in the industry that is underway right now.

The session examines why the challenge of reducing embodied carbon has taken on increased importance in the last few years, how the industry is responding, the critical tools to measure and address embodied carbon, and advancements in concrete that offer solutions. It provides viewers with the insights necessary to help them better understand the future of concrete construction.

Some key findings that the webinar covers include:

  • 70% of architects, engineers and contractors report an increase in the number of owners who have made public ESG and sustainability commitments.
  • Roughly 75% of architects, engineers and contractors state that reducing cementitious content in concrete would positively influence their decisions.
  • EPDs are very likely to influence contractors’ purchasing decisions, meaning that for producers, having material-specific EPDs is directly tied to profitability.
