Feb 24 - Embodied Carbon in Transportation Infrastructure


Join us online on Wednesday, February 24th from 12 – 1pm for a webinar on “Embodied Carbon in Transportation Infrastructure”.


We have three exciting speakers lined up who are actively playing their part to increase awareness of embodied carbon considerations in the infrastructure industry. They will present industry practice and highlight major opportunities to reduce embodied carbon with a special focus on Concrete Pavements. They will also deep dive into interdependencies with operational carbon such as the impact on vehicular efficiency.
