Concrete Innovations - Pathways for Reducing Concrete Carbon Footprint
Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2024
Time: 11:00 am-12:00 pm MT Presentation
Presenter: Donn Thompson, Senior Director, Building Innovations, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association
It is becoming increasingly common for developers and the AEC community to establish carbon reduction goals for projects, in addition to other sustainability targets. Policies are being put in place that set carbon footprint limits on certain materials. In this session we will review the current landscape of embodied carbon and sustainability, how to calculate the carbon footprint of your scope on a project and discuss availability of local materials and strategies to reduce embodied carbon of concrete, including specific strategies to incorporate in specifications. We will also discuss how the ready-mix supplier can support the industry on a project that has carbon reduction goals.
