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. Join Donna Laquidara-Carr, PhD, LEED AP, Industry Insights Research Director at Dodge Construction Network and Allison Palmer, Sr. Manager, Strategic Business at CarbonCure as they present new research on reducing embodied carbon in concrete construction that demonstrates a major shift in the industry that is underway right now.
The session will examine 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 to this challenge. It will provide attendees with the insights necessary to help them better understand the future of concrete construction.
Some key findings that the webinar will cover include:
• 70% of architects, engineers and contractors report that they have seen 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.
• The overall findings from contractors in the study suggest that EPDs are very likely to influence their purchasing decisions, meaning that for producers, having EPDs at the ready is directly tied to profitability.
