The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has published its Low Carbon Concrete Route Map.
The document explores how the industry can adopt the latest tools, technologies and materials to continue using concrete whilst working towards a zero‐carbon future.
In fact, the cement which is the active ingredient in concrete produces emissions equivalent to 7.2 million cars each year.
So, the new route map sets out a number of recommendations for clients and contractors to reduce emissions and support Government 2050 net zero targets.
Supporting the development of low carbon materials is one of the nine priorities within CO2nstruct Zero, the industry‐wide programme to drive carbon out of the sector.
Companies across the construction supply chain can sign up as a Business Champion by aligning their own business commitments to one or more of the CO2nstruct Zero priorities.
